Raising the Flag

Students, instructors and administrators from SBISD’s Guthrie Center observed a brief Patriot’s Day ceremony commemorating the events of September 11, 2001, when terrorists with al-Qaeda launched four coordinated attacks on New York City and the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

Led by the Spring Branch Navy Jr. ROTC, the Sept. 11 ceremony included a flag raising, pledges of allegiance to both the American and Texas flags, a moment of silence and a reading by Darrell Lewis, a Guthrie Center criminal justice instructor.

As a part of the observance, Navy Jr. ROTC Cadets Emily Wade and Josie Millan, both seniors at the Westchester Academy of International Studies, raised the flag in observance of Patriot’s Day. Retired Navy Senior Commander Jerry W. Coufal is the Senior Naval Science Instructor.
