Today, as we do every year, Burlington High School took time to recognize the 16th year anniversary of September 11, 2001. Time goes on, but we pause to remember so we never forget this horrible tragedy and the thousands of innocent people who lost their lives.
We took the time to remember all who lost their lives or a loved one on this horrific day, but we specifically remembered several members of the Burlington Community who lost their lives on 9/11:
Robert J. Hayes
Burlington High School Class of 1981
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, we place a vase with four roses in the lobby of the high school - it sits in front of the plaque in memory of the four members of the BHS community we lost - and will never forget.
