Students at Walnut and Diamond Bar high schools are commemorating the anniversary of 9-11 in different ways.
The following is information provided by the Walnut Valley Unified School Districts on how the two campuses are remembering.
Walnut High School:
In honor of Patriot’s Day, student volunteers placed nearly 3,000 flags in front of the campus. Students in the Teen Republican’s Club, advised by Social Studies teacher Brett Landis, head up the Patriot’s Day remembrance.
Early Tuesday morning, Landis placed a flag with all of the victim’s names in the school office.
When Walnut High students come to school on today they will see the patriotic display of red, white, and blue that includes a 911 and a pentagon in honor of the 2,997 victims of the nation’s tragedy
Diamond Bar High School:
Art teacher Dave Hamel organizes a display of several white sculptures in the school quad. The annual tribute includes paper mache’ replicas of the Twin Towers, Pentagon and a(Flight) 93. Last year he added a tribute to a bandana-wearing stockbroker Welles Crowther who helped many survivors down flights of stairs to safety after the attacks. Hamel’s studio art class will be working on a new sculpture today.
The artwork will be on display today.
