MEMS hosts patriotic program to commemorate 9/11 anniversary

MEMS hosts patriotic program to commemorate 9/11 anniversary

“9/11 was not just one day. It was that day, as well as the days, months and years afterward.”
Those words hung in the air in the commons area of McColl Elementary/Middle School, spoken by a former New York City policeman who was on duty that terrible day in 2001.
This September 11 marked the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that rocked America to its core. MEMS commemorated the occasion with a patriotic program the previous Thursday, September 7, with Officer Felix Cruz as special guest speaker.

Late last week, it appeared that then-Hurricane Irma, packing 185-mile-per-hour winds and weighing in as a strong Category 5 storm, might carve a path directly across eastern South Carolina.
