VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia high school is hosting a 9-11 memorial service on Thursday.

The Lowndes High event service includes the Georgia Bridgeman Band playing the national anthem, the presentation of colors from the Lowndes High ROTC, and inspirational readings.

It's sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Club member Luke Wilson organized it.

"Well I was seeing it on TV and I was like if our nation's hurting our nation should be hurting too," said Luke Wilson, LHS Memorial Service Organizer.

  "The message is that you know it's been eight years since 9-11 happened and it's easy to forget," said John Shelton, FCA Supervisor.

The memorial service begins at 7:30 on Thursday at Martin Stadium.
