Video of Ceremony

Johnson High School recognized the 11th anniversary of ‘9-11’ by remembering those who were victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States by holding their 5th annual Patriot Day ceremony on Tuesday, September 11 at the school’s main flag pole.

The ceremony was dedicated to the Armed Forces and First Responders. The cadets of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) led the ceremony. Select cadets leaders spoke on why Patriot Day is recognized, the meaning of flying the flags at half-staff and a brief history of Taps. Johnson JROTC cadets assembled in a formation at the school’s main flag pole just prior to the ceremony. JROTC cadets raised the United States and Texas flags to half-staff.

The community was invited to attend. All attendees were given a yellow ribbon to wear in remembrance.
