The Corinth Police Department and Lake Cities Fire Department joined the students of Bettye Myers Middle School today for an event to remember the fallen of September 11, 2001. Patriot Day is observed annually with a ceremony around the American flag flown at half-staff.

Officers in attendance presented the flag and addressed students about the significance of this date fifteen years ago. The choir sang the National Anthem and led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. A beautifully written commemorative poem was presented by members of the student council and the band played a tribute song after a moment of silence.

Members from both the police and fire departments attended physical education classes at Crownover Middle School and cheered students on as they completed a stair climb in honor of the lives lost in the World Trade Center. The public safety staff also demonstrated what it is like to wear firefighter's gear while going up and down steps and shared what being a police officer entails and what it means to serve.

"It was a day full of emotion, education, and team building," expressed Lieutenant Jimmie Gregg of the Corinth Police Department. "Many of these students were not even born when this tragedy happened, yet they continue to learn and celebrate the history of our heroes."
