Panama City Beach Students Remember 9/11

Posted: Updated:

Panama City Beach students of all ages paid tribute to those who lost their lives on September 11th, as well as honored the men and women who currently serve their community.

All 1,400 students at Breakfast Point Academy gathered around the flag pole early Wednesday morning to pay to show their support. Panama City Beach Firefighters and police officers stood by as both agencies' leaders told kids where they were on that fateful day twelve years ago.

Panama City Beach Fire Rescue Chief John Daly says many of these young students weren't even born yet when America was attacked September 11th, and it's important to remember the first responders who paid the ultimate price.

Just down the road at Arnold High School, students paid their respects to the men and women in uniform who perished in the 9/11 attacks through prayer, music, and JROTC's presentation of the colors.

Panama City Beach Police Chief Drew Whitman says it's important for students to take time out of their school day to remember the tragic events that changed our nation twelve years ago.
