VIDEO: Prep’s 9-11 ceremony

It’s been 21 years since the tragedy, but Passaic Preparatory Academy students, staff and faculty showed that the victims of the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center will never be forgotten.

Passaic Prep held a memorial ceremony on the front steps of the school on Friday, Sept. 9, 2022. Principal Stacey Bruce opened the ceremony by welcoming students after a rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner by student Jasmin Hernandez. Mrs. Bruce then introduced Student Council President Bryan Perez Mejia for a speech, and he was followed by Vice President Nelsie Abreu. A moment of silence was observed and Taps was played on the trumpet by Ashanti Julmisse. Seniors planted small American flags in the grass out of respect for those who died in the Twin Towers in New York City 21 years ago.
