This years day of remembering began early with the Judson ISD Police Department in partnership with City of Converse Police and Fire Department gathering to honor the fallen heroes of September 11, 2001 with a memorial stair climb.
 
The program included a brief remembrance ceremony then participants climbed several sets of stairs over an hour and a half, stopping along the way to commemorate specific times such as; when each building collapsed, and the time the pentagon was struck and the time that flight 93 crashed.
 
Firefighters and Police men and women were joined by coaching staff from JHS. A special way to commemoriate those heroes.
