Students at Milton, Cambridge and Roswell high schools will remember the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, by placing 2,997 flags on the grounds of their schools today in memory of those who lost their lives.

Milton High School student Savannah Bailey is organizing her school’s sixth year of having a Sept. 11 display.

The flags will be placed on the school’s front lawn. Her brother, Zach, had been in charge of organizing the display in years prior.

A short memorial service will be held at 8 a.m. and is open to the public. Residents are invited to reflect on the display throughout the day.

Cambridge High School junior Caroline Willis is leading her school’s second Never Forget Memorial. In addition to the flags placed on the school’s front lawn, the Cambridge chorus will sing the national anthem in the morning and a memorial book will be on site for those who wish to write down their thoughts about the day.

Roswell High School senior Madeleine Nolte is starting her school’s first Project 9/11 event, in hopes to begin a tradition at the school.

Flags will be displayed on the school’s front lawn and a ceremony will be held at 7:30 a.m. with state Sen. John Albers as the keynote speaker.
