On Tuesday, September 11th 2018, the Warwick High School held its annual 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony. This event honors and remembers those who have lost their lives on the day of 9/11. All were welcomed to join outside the high school at the flagpole and were greeted by social studies teacher, Mr. Paul Castellitto. Amelia Fair sang the national anthem to kick things off, followed by the “Pledge of allegiance.”
Local heroes and first responders were in attendance at the ceremony. Three of Lititz own hometown heroes were recognized. They were Captain Michael Winters of the Lancaster Police, Operations Chief, and paramedic of Warwick Community Ambulance, Chris Buchmoyer, and Marlene Barr also a paramedic for the Warwick Community Ambulance.
Newly hired Chief of Police for the district, John Schofield, gave a personal account of where he was on that day. He encouraged students to continue to learn as much as they can about what happened that day so that we may never forget the ones that risked their lives to help others.
Mr. Castellitto closed with a moment of silence to remember the families of the victims who lost their lives at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and over Shanksville, P.A.
