Nicole Neville, vice president of National Honor Society at Columbia Independent School, places one of 2,977 flags in the ground Thursday. "I think it really shows the damage that 9/11 caused," Neville said. "People know the number of how many people died, but I think it is hard to imagine. It will help people remember."
