A message from senior Reiley Fox:  

Although some of us were not yet born on September 11, 2001, and the rest of us were too young to remember, the terrorist attacks on that day have become a part of who we are as students and citizens of the United States.  For our faculty, staff, administration, and parents, 9/11 will be a day that they will never forget. 


15 years ago this Sunday, a senseless act of terrorism killed 2977 innocent victims, 343 firefighters, and 72 law enforcement officers.  Over 6000 others were injured.  Today, we reaffirm the spirit of patriotism, service, and community that our country felt so strongly in those days and months following the attack.  Today, 15 years later, let’s carry on that spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood that carried a wounded nation through what was arguably the most difficult time in contemporary American history.
