The History Club would like to thank everyone that participated in this years Jog-a-Thon and the veterans that participated in our kick ball game. It was a great year with great weather. We raised money and most importantly, awareness for Mission 22 and what they do for many of our Veterans who need support. Shout out to our Veteran kickball team who schooled the high schoolers!😉

For all of those inquiring about the hometown hero banners, due to the turn around time of getting them ordered and shipped, and it being the end of the school year, we are not able to order anymore this round. We will be opening it back up around Veterans Day though and will have it open again until the end of February. Like our page so you don’t miss out on updates.

Something came in the mail this week! We’re excited to get them out to our local towns, to be hung in the coming weeks.

What a blast it was to spend two full days in Washington! Our History Club joined CV’s to tackle the Nations Capital and Mt. Vernon. Two beautiful days of touring and learning about some of the most significant themes, people, and places in American History. Students participated in the wreath laying ceremony for the Washingtons and their enslaved. They also toured all the Monuments, and one student even relived moments of Forest Gump at the Lincoln Memorial. Students toured Washingtons #1 most visited museum and bowled the night away. Needless to say, we had a blast and just want to thank Mr. Butterfield for allowing us to make this happen, and the students for representing NTSD well! Where to next!?

We had quite the day yesterday honoring our Veterans. It began with a breakfast in which we had over 50 Veterans attend. We then transitioned into a school-wide assembly that focused on honoring our Veterans for their service and educated students on how and why we should honor our Veterans. We also devoted a bit of the assembly to recognizing those that fought in the War on Terror and educated the student body on issues our Veterans are facing at home. Two big announcements were made during the assembly. One was that the History Club will be sponsoring the Hometown Heroes program in Tioga, Millerton, and Lawrenceville, which will open up in December. The other big announcement was that we were able to raise $5500 from our Jogathon to be able to donate to Mission 22! We finished the assembly off with a special tribute from families. To see all of this and more, the recording has been saved and posted to our page. Thank you to everyone that helped in making this day special for our Veterans and thank you to all the Veterans that attended.

The History Club would like to thank everyone that participated in this years record setting Jog-a-Thon and the local veterans that participated in our kick ball game. It was a great year with great weather. Our sponsors helped us set a record with roughly 250 students participating and a record amount to be given to Mission 22. Although the teacher team lost to the kick ball tournament champs, we had a great time participating in a great cause! Looking forward to next year!

The Williamson History Club has a busy fall in store. On September 10th, they hosted a school-wide assembly on the 20th Anniversary of September 11th. The assembly focused on three themes: Remembrance, Courage, and Solidarity. Mr. Jordan Collum and members of the History Club spoke and shared stories from the events on September 11th and the days and weeks that followed. The assembly kicked off with a collage of videos, featuring faculty members sharing what they remembered from September 11th, 2001. Then, President of the History Club Sydney Carlin shifted the focus to the first theme, remembrance, by leading students through the destruction of that day and the weeks that followed, finishing with a moment of silence to honor those we lost from the events of that day. Students then shared three stories of courage from September 11, 2001. One of those stories was that of the passengers on Flight 93 that prevented the third plane from hitting its designated target by crashing it into a field in Shanksville, PA. The other was of local hero, Daniel Walsh of Wellsboro, that went to NYC in the days that followed to assist in the rescue and recovery effort, and later whose life was taken from cancer, likely caused from his exposure to toxic fumes, chemicals, and dust that blanketed the city after the towers fell. The assembly finished with its third theme, solidarity. Another collage of videos of faculty members was shown, in which they shared the solidarity they remember witnessing that day and the weeks and months that followed. One final story was shared with students about locals to NYC coming together to support those in the clean-up of the city. Mr. Collum wrapped up the presentation connecting everything from the assembly with these final words, “The History Club hopes that tomorrow, on 9/11 you wake up with a better understanding of why so much attention is given in commemorating this event. 9/11 is a day to memorialize those who lost their lives due to the attacks, honor and give attention to the courage and bravery that was on display the day of, and the weeks and months that followed the attacks, and recognize how Americans came together in solidarity during our darkest hours.”

On October 1st the History Club will be hosting its annual jogathon in which half of the proceeds will go, once again, to Mission 22, a leading organization in the fight against Veteran Death by Su***de. This annual event is a full-day event in which students pay a fee to spend the entire day down at the track, spending half of the time walking to raise awareness for the epidemic that is Veteran Su***de, and the other half participating in a number of other activities such as games, a kickball tournament, and grabbing a bite to eat. Through this event, the History Club has raised over $10,000 for Veteran associated organizations such as Operation Homefront and Mission 22.

Finally, on November 11th, the History Club will be honoring Veterans Day with a breakfast for local veterans and a school-wide assembly to follow. All local veterans are invited to attend the breakfast and assembly, which begins at 7:30 in the Williamson High School Gym. RSVP’s are appreciated. The Williamson History Club is looking for community help in gathering names and addresses of local veterans in our area that have never been invited to this event in the past. If you happen to know a local veteran that has missed out on this event in the past, contact Mr. Jordan Collum at [email protected] with the name and address of the veteran, so the club can send them an invite.

09/11/2021

September 11th, 2001, A day which will live in infamy, America experienced the worst terrorist attack carried out on its own soil in our History. Four planes were overtaken by members of the terrorist organization Al Qaeda. Two of those planes crashed into the Twin Towers in New York City, One plane hit the Pentagon, and One plane crashed into a field in Somerset County, PA, on its way to the Capitol in Washington. This was our generation’s Pearl Harbor, a day in which everyone alive at the time of the attack remembers the moment they heard the news and the moment they turned on the television set to see the Twin Towers had been hit. It’s an event that may have occurred twenty years ago tomorrow but still makes the hair stand, and brings out emotions that many are still dealing with after viewing the events unfold all over again.
2997….that is the number of people that lost their lives in a terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001. As of August 2013, medical authorities concluded that 1,140 people who worked, lived, or studied in Lower Manhattan at the time of the attack have been diagnosed with cancer as a result of "exposure to toxins at Ground Zero". It has also been reported that over 1,400 rescue workers who responded to the scene in the days and months after the attacks have since died. It's important that we take time on this day to memorialize and hold a moment of silence for all of the victims from that day and the weeks and months that followed in the recovery effort.
In addition to memorialization, we must also recognize the unbelievable amount of courage that was on display that day and the days that followed. People such as Welles Crowther, a 24-year-old equities trader on the 104th floor that rushed people to safety and then went back for others. Unfortunately, his body would be recovered with a number of first responders in a stairwell of the South tower. There was also the passengers on flight 93 who gave their lives to ensure hundreds and possibly thousands more didn't lose their lives on that fateful day. Finally, we have local heroes such as Daniel Walsh, a first responder from Wellsboro, PA. Walsh was en route to the site of the Twin Towers within 24 hours of the attack and spent several days at the scene assisting in the rescue and recovery effort. Making the ultimate sacrifice, as just four years later at age 58, Dan Walsh lost his battle with the cancer that was most likely caused from his exposure to toxic fumes, chemicals, and dust that blanketed the city after the towers fell.
Finally, when reflecting on 9/11 twenty years later, we cannot forget the amount of solidarity that was on display across the country. "The urge to mourn alongside others brought people together throughout New York City, across the country, and around the world. People gathered in parks and town halls, on college campuses, and in places of worship. Spontaneous memorials appeared in town squares, on roadside billboards, and outside firehouses and police stations. People of different ages, backgrounds, and abilities also found meaning in public service after the 9/11 attacks. Volunteers such as Mr. Walsh flocked to lower Manhattan from around the country to provide assistance Thousands of others volunteered in a number of ways, such as signing on with organizations such as the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army, while others volunteered independently. Across the country, many people channeled their emotions by enlisting in the military, founding charities, contributing to philanthropic causes, or helping those in need in other ways."
I’m sure most everyone that was alive during the attacks can remember an American Flag displayed on every home, business, and street corner. How Democrats and Republicans came together, after one of the most controversial elections in our history to be there for each other and for a common good.
In conclusion, 9/11 is a day to memorialize those who lost their lives due to the attacks, honor and give attention to the courage and bravery that was on display the day of, and the weeks and months that followed the attacks, and to recognize how Americans came together in solidarity during our darkest hours.
