CAS Remembers 9/11 with Flag Ceremony

100_1671The Center for Academic Success held a short flagpole memorial ceremony in honor of the American tragedy of September 11th. Middle and high school students with staff met Dean of Students Jarad Young at the CAS flag pole for a few words on the importance of honoring the fallen and remembering the anniversary each year of the attacks.

Students and staff had a somber raising of the flag to half-mast in silence followed by a salute and pledge. On this day, and all days, CAS is proud to serve our families who work to protect our freedoms in the armed forces and employ so many veterans on our staff. 100_1674Students will continue to remember the day at CAS with moments of silence and readings about the 9/11 events which took 3,000 American lives 13 years ago.
