Remembering 9/11

It is tradition at Burlington High School to mark the anniversary of September 11, 2001. Time will go on for everyone who was affected by this tragedy, but we paused this morning to remember - so we never forget this horrific tragedy and the thousands of innocent people who lost their lives. Here, in our school community, we also remember several members of the Burlington Community who lost their lives on 9/11:

Robert J. Hayes

Burlington High School Class of 1981

Thomas McGuinnes

Co-Pilot of America Airlines Flight 11 and 1977 BHS graduate 

Jim & Mary Trentini 

Retired Burlington High School Teacher and Coach and his wife

In addition to a moment of silence and the singing of the National Anthem (video below), a vase with four roses is placed in the lobby on September 11 - it sits in front of the plaque in memory of the four members of the BHS community we lost - and will never forget.
