Oh What a Night!!

9/11 Ceremony

Today, Western High School and the South Florida Community commemorated the 17th anniversary of the events that occurred on September 11, 2001. The Wildcat Battalion did an outstanding job during the ceremonies as always. Today’s event was especially poignant for this year’s Seniors. They were just infants when the attacks occurred on 9/11 and they will be the last class that was alive when 9/11 happened. Thank you Western High School for continuing to host this ceremony every year. May we never forget.
