Mepham HS unveils plaque honoring 9/11 first responders

On November 3, 2017, Wellington C. Mepham High School in Merrick, NY held a ceremony to unveil a plaque in honor of the firefighters, police officers and emergency medical personnel killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Local officials attended the event, as did Mary Ann Rand, mother of FDNY Firefighter Adam Rand, who was killed responding to the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Students in the school’s Key Club raised the money for the plaque, reports staff of the Merrick Patch.

The plaque can be found on the flagpole near the school’s Camp Avenue entrance.

The school was given a piece of steel from the former World Trade Center to display.
