COLUMBIA — Students at Columbia Independent School placed 2,977 flags around their school, one for each 9/11 victim, on Thursday to commemorate the lives that were lost on Sept. 11, 2001. Young America's Foundation started "9/11: Never Forget" in 2003 to remind students to remember terrorist attacks. Matthew Monos, a member of the National Honor Society, brought the project to his school after discovering it during the National High School Leadership Conference this summer in Washington, D.C.
