STOCKDALE -- On Monday, Sept. 12, Charlin Akin and her AP and Pre-AP English students placed June petunias in the flowerbeds outside the front entrance to Stockdale High School to honor the heroes who gave their lives on that fateful day 10 years ago.
In addition to the flowers, the classes placed photographs on a poster inside Mrs. Akin’s classroom, recited a poem, and read an essay honoring each person on an individual level. This is an enduring symbol that those who call themselves Americans have not forgotten the lives lost Sept. 11, 2001, and that they will likely never forget.
John A. Rogers, the son of Sheri and William Lamprecht Jr., is a senior at Stockdale High School. He participates in UIL calculator, mathematics, and science, and plans to work for a year after high school, before starting college in 2013.
