White Knoll High School HOSA Chapter delivered 9-11 remembrance/recognition pins to Lexington County Fire, Lexington County EMS, Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, and Lexington City Police on September 9, 2015.
Students and advisors hand delivered the pins to each office with a thank you note and an invitation to join us during a flag raising ceremony at school. A representative of each division of Emergency Services attended our ceremony along with approximately 75 students and staff. Among those attendees, Major J. J. Jones from Lexington County Sheriff’s Department. He was a part of the delegation from White Knoll Middle who delivered the firetruck to the New York City Fire Station after losing their truck and several members in the 9-11 attacks. Major Jones was very moved to see the generosity of White Knoll continue to serve and recognize emergencyresponders.
As part of education and remembrance, the school broadcasted historical information about the events of 9-11 and the activities WKHS HOSA planned. We also had a HOSA meeting in which 1st Sgt. David Pelley reminded the members about the incredible community response from White Knoll and how it made national headlines in 2001 for the extraordinary efforts made by such a small community.
