9/11 remembered

Long Beach Job Corps Student Government Association Officers Jasmine Rayo, Erick Garcia, Lakea Lilly with Staff member Crystal Aguayo and student Tiffany Brown stand in front of the 9/11 Building on campus.

The Student Government Association of the Long Beach Job Corps Center conducted a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony yesterday for all students and staff. The ceremony is an annual event.

Most of the Long Beach Job Corps students were from 5 to 13 years old when 9/11 occurred, so the ceremony incorporates the history of the event and is a teaching tool for students who were very young when it occurred. Ms. Tiffany Brown, the Student Government Association Green Officer began the ceremony with a brief introduction outlining the events of 9/11. Ms. Crystal Aguayo, a staff member and Student Government Association Advisor gave a heartfelt rendition of the National Anthem. The students also read poems about the event.

In her closing remarks, Student Government Vice-President Jasmine Rayo stated, “On this 11th anniversary, we are reminded to never forget, stay vigilant, and remain united.”
