Drexel High School Young Americans for Freedom honoring 911

Drexel High School is celebrating Homecoming week, like many other schools in our area.  But a few Drexel Students are also remembering 9/11.

Shayn Smith started a chapter of Young Americans for Freedom at the Drexel School last year.

Shayn Smith along with 14 other Drexel High School students placed 2977 flags for the 9/11 Never Forget Project in honor and remembrance of the lives lost on 9/11 twenty years ago and they also placed 13 flags in honor of the soldiers recently killed in Afghanistan. 

These students worked tirelessly after a full day of school and couple hours of football practice for most of them. They did it on their own accord with no adult to guide them. Just a group of young Drexel Students who recognize the importance of patriotism.
