    Today’s Quote: - Be patient with yourself, nothing in nature blooms all year.”

    • On September 11, 2001, acts of terrorism changed our country and our world. While there was much heartache, fear and loss of life, there were also many acts of bravery, leadership and heroism. Today we are honoring the life of Welles Remy Crowther, a Nyack High School graduate, who is  known around the world as the “Man in the Red Bandanna” for his selfless, heroic actions during his final hour at the World Trade Center. It is believed that by running back up into Tower 1, he saved many lives and unfortunately sacrificed his own. Welles always wore a red bandana and his legacy will live on through the Red Bandana project, which reminds all of us to care for each other and promotes leadership and selflessness. We invite you all to honor Welles Remy Crowther's life and the lives of all lost on September 11 by wearing a red bandana today. You can pick one up during lunch periods by visiting the 9/11 memorial table in the lobby while supplies last.
