Valley remembers 9/11 attacks
It's been 18 years today since the September 11 terrorist attacks. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day, including some Valley natives.
To remember those victims, there were different events and ceremonies across the area from Boardman to Wellsville.
Wellsville remembered 36-year-old Cathy Salter, who was from the village and worked in tower two.
Several people gathered at the village's 9/11 memorial to remember Salter, and a moment of silence was held for all the victims.
"It's important. It's important to me, and I think the whole community realizes that we don't forget, not just Catherine but everybody," Eleanor Salter said.
This ceremony takes place every year. A memorial scholarship has been set up in Cathy's name.
In Boardman, there was a special tribute to first responders.
A ceremony took place Wednesday morning at the Safety Services Memorial in the township, which is dedicated to the men and women who risk their lives every day and to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Over at Hubbard High School, students who weren't even born when the attacks happened used virtual reality to see 360-degree views of the current 9/11 memorial.
