September 11, 2007

Albany -- Students at Turner Job Corps continued their campus tradition of honoring the victims of September 11th.

 In 2001, after the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, students at Turner Job Corps erected this concrete monument of the towers in the center of their campus.

On the sixth anniversary of the terror attacks, the students planted one thousand flags around the monument. Student Government President Darren Jackson was one of the students who marched to the memorial to plant his flag.  Jackson said "In silence remembering the ones who lost their lives, on September 11th, and we all just planted our flags silently, and marched around."  

This is the fifth year that the Turner Job Corps students have honored the victims of September 11th, planting the one thousand flags.
