The Lafayette community gathered at the flag pole before school to remember the attacks of September 11, 2001.

AFJROTC Instructor SMSgt. Matt Zahradka said, “It didn’t matter what political party you were, where you came from, we were all Americans and we all looked out after each other. It was a very special bond.”
