Remembering 9-11 Promise to Students

Tenth grade students from Hancock Central School hold up a 3-by-14 foot banner displaying ?KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK? and signed by the then 3rd graders, faculty and other students.

The banner was taped to donations sent to Soldiers working 18-hour shifts supporting rescue and recovery efforts at ?Ground Zero? following the World Trade Center attacks in 2001.

The banner was returned nearly seven years later by retired Sgt. 1st Class Delbert Higgins, 42nd Infantry ?Rainbow? Division during a school wide 9-11 Remembrance ceremony on Sept. 11, 2008.

Higgins kept his promise to say thank you to roughly 35 youngsters who demonstrated concern and ultimately motivated Soldiers during a difficult time.
