Yesterday marked the seventeenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, devastating thousands of families all over the nation. Every year, we gather on the soccer field at the Barbara Edwards Memorial for the 9/11 rededication ceremony during first period to commemorate the tragic events of Sept. 11 and the loss of PVHS teacher, Barbara Edwards. In attendance were Principle Darren Sweikert, PVHS administration, Chamber Choir, and AFJROTC, as well as dozens of family, friends, and local crew news.

Leading the ceremony, the AFJROTC Corps Commander, Alexandra Vasknetz, gave a speech honoring Ms. Barbara Edwards. She respectively explained the events that took place on 11 Sept. 2001, and then introduced the sol trumpeter who played “Taps” on his trumpet, Daniel DeLeon. The Chamber Choir then performed the Star Spangled Banner at the ceremony, under the direction of Mr. Isbell.

“It’s very important that we keep honoring Barbara Edwards in this way because if we don’t, soon enough, she will be forgotten,”  Mrs. Lovell, one of our deans here at Palo, emphasized. “The significance of this day should never be forgotten.”
