LCHS Stands Together for 9/11 Remembrance Parade

On September 9th, LCHS students and staff assembled at the front of the school to watch the fourth annual 911 Remembrance Motorcade, organized by the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Early Rodders Car Club.

The parade route began at the Ralph's Shopping Center in La Crescenta and continued past Rosemont Elementary, Monte Vista Elementary, Valley View School, Clark High School, Dunsmore Elementary, St. James School, Lincoln School, Crescenta Valley High School, American Legion VFW, Montessori School, Flintridge Preparatory, St. Bedes, Crestview Preparatory, several fire stations, and ended just past La Canada High School.

Head of security at LCHS, Tanya Wilson, was instrumental in organizing LCHS' participation on campus. She worked diligently to make sure students were safely and clearly able to watch as emergency response vehicles drove by carrying many of the every day heroes who serve this community as first responders as well as mint-condition, classic cars preserved from decades past. 

The parade provided an opportunity for all members of the LCHS community to stand together in order to remember and reflect on the tragic events that occurred and the victims lost, including many emergency first-responders, on September 11, 2001. 

Thank you to everyone who made the event possible!
