Bossier Schools Remember 9/11
Patriotism was evident throughout Bossier Parish Schools on September 11 as students remembered the victims of the nation's worst terrorist act in history.
Benton Elementary held "Treats for the Troops," packing non-perishable food items, along with cards and letters, and shipped them to soldiers serving overseas. A Heroes' Walk followed on 9/11 with proceeds benefiting the Northwest Louisiana War Veterans Home and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Apollo Elementary students presented a patriotic sing-along, paying tribute to the 200th anniversary of the National Anthem. And several students from Airline, Bossier High, Central Park and Parkway participated in the City of Bossier's 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony held at the Municipal Complex. At the Patriot Awards afterward, the Benton High AFJROTC Color Guard had everyone's attention during a moving POW/MIA Ceremony.
Parkway's AFJROTC cadets then held a full Retreat Ceremony outside the school. Canned goods were also collected for the Airman's Attic, a food pantry at Barksdale Air Force Base. Meanwhile, 22 Airline High School AFJROTC cadets placed 2,977 American flags at Brownlee Park for that evening's Remembrance Walk. Many of the cadets also participated in the walk, then helped retrieve the flags afterward.
Even though it has been 13 years since the 9/11 attacks, Bossier Schools will never forget how that day changed our nation, nor the 2,977 people who lost their lives. May none of us ever forget.
