WCHS athletes remember 9/11
Warren County High School athletes from many teams came together Monday to commemorate 9/11 firefighters by climbing stairs. The amount of stairs they climbed matched those the brave firefighters could not continue, when they crumbled underneath them while trying to save those trapped in the inferno above. The students raised money for local firefighters in the process.
Warren County High School student-athletes participated in a 9/11 Awareness event Monday to commemorate the tragic events of the World Trade Center attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. With the names and photos of fallen New York firefighters, approximately 140 Warren County High School student-athletes divided and conquered the staircases of Warren County High School.“This was an awesome day and all those who participated are to be commended for their efforts,” said Warren High School athletic director Todd Willmore.Their goal was to symbolically climb the flights of stairs firefighters were unable to complete that day. Numerous student-athletes climbed every flight for their fallen heroes, while some divided themselves into teams and climbed as smaller groups until the total number of stairs was reached.
