EAST LOS ANGELES, CA -- Due to the prevailing COVID-19 crisis, many events have been canceled or modified in virtual formats. Each year Garfield High School joins together to commemorate 9/11. In spite of all of the adversities this year, we continue to observe the 20th anniversary of 9/11 with the support from our High School Principal Mr. Favela, Leadership Mrs. Herrington, other members of faculty, the Band, Football Team, Cheer and members of the JROTC Mighty Bulldawg Battalion.

Our senior cadet leadership recorded a video leading the pledge, an inspiring 9/11 narrative from our principal, a moment of silence, and Taps played by three band trumpet players.

“Let us never forget” the ones that lost their lives on that tragic day, especially as we celebrate the 20th anniversary. Again, we all made it happen with passion and remembrance.
