COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - Aggieland High School is making sure their students know about the significance of 9/11. For the first time in the school’s short history, they hosted their “Aggieland High School September 11th Memorial Ceremony.”

Students were let out of class to participate and learn more about the events that happened that day. Eliel Hinojosa Jr. Ph.D., Aggieland’s Instructional Coach says it’s important that the students are educated and honor everyone who lost their lives during the attacks.

“This event really centers our students. It highlights events that are bigger than them. And it helps to bring social studies and history to the forefront,” said Hinojosa.

This event featured student speakers, the Aggieland High School choir sang the national anthem and a student played “Taps” on the trumpet. Aggieland High School looks forward to hosting another September 11th Memorial Ceremony next year.
