Hendersonville High's social studies department held its annual symposium last week with the theme "September 11, 2001 – Twenty Years Later."
An assembly held Friday, Nov. 19 featured guest speaker Christian Martin, a former producer for NBC who was on scene at the World Trade Center when the towers fell and whose footage was featured on major news networks. Martin also visited each social studies class.
The assembly included a dance performance by Jalon Blackwell, a play titled "So Many Stories" and performances by HHS' band and orchestra.
Students learned about the historic day throughout the week by viewing 9/11 video footage, researching foreign nations' perspectives of the events, and having lessons and debates on United States foreign policy. There were also victim tributes.
