“Northport September 11, 2001 Children’s Memorial Library”

The Northport Media Center is officially named “The Northport K-8 School Children’s Memorial Library” in honor and remembrance of the eight children who perished on September 11, 2001.

The children from United Flight 175 were Christine Hanson, age 2, David Brandhorst, age 3, and Juliana McCourt, age 4. The children from American Flight 77 were Dana Falkenberg, age 3, Zoe Falkenberg, age 8, Rodney Dickens, age 11, Bernard Curtis Brown, age 11 and Asia Cottom, age 11.

The memorial tribute is placed beneath the Northport American flag. The Remembrance at Northport was stunning in its authenticity and nearly completely devoted to student as teacher lessons developing critical thinking skills.
