Raiders Honor 9/11
     On the 12th anniversary of the devastating attack on New York City's Twin Towers, Port Richmond Raiders held a special assembly to commemorate all of the lives lost by the tragedy. A stirring performance of the national anthem played by trumpet player junior Brian Keegan, an impacting video news timeline, and a special guest speaker, writer and professor at Hunter University Samantha Smith, all made for a very moving experience, and a number of audience members were moved to tears. The quiet and respectful student audience was truly impressive, reminding us all of the terrible nature of this historic event and of the high quality of our Raiders.
