HMS 6th Graders Visit Flight 93 Memorial


In September, Highlands Middle School 6th Grade students took an educational field trip to the Flight 93 Memorial in Somerset County, PA. Students learned how the actions of the 40 passengers and crew aboard Flight 93 thwarted the attack on the U.S. Capitol on September 11, 2001.
