Wednesday, September 11, 2013 1:00 AM
The Philadelphia-Neshoba County Career Technical Center on Valley View Drive will host a moment of silence this morning on the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists attacks.
Students will gather outside at the flagpole for the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence beginning at 8 a.m.
Joining the students will be members of the Neshoba Central Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps.
There will be no guest speaker this year, Sharon Brooks, a teacher at the center, said.
Also remembered are the soldiers that were killed during the resulting conflicts, including two from Neshoba County.
In May 2004, Sgt. Joshua Shane Ladd, 20, of National Guard's 367th Maintenance Co., was killed near Mosul when hostile forces ambushed his convoy and a rocket-propelled grenade struck his vehicle.
In August 2004, Second Lt. Matthew Ryan Stovall, 25, also of the 367th, was killed in Iraq when a roadside bomb exploded as the convoy in which he was riding passed.
