On Monday, September 11th, at 9:46 a.m., Saltus Grammar School will remember Saltus alumni Boyd A. Gatton [1962-2001] and Robert D. W. Higley II [1971-2001] who perished in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11th of 2001.

This ceremony will take place in front of the Secondary Department’s Dudley G. Butterfield Library Research Centre on the St. John’s Road campus.

Rev. Jonathan Connell will say a prayer and Head Prefects will lay a wreath by the memorial plaques. Head of School Deryn Lavell and Deputy Head [Advancement] Jon Beard will speak. S10 student Zander Miller will play “Taps”, and former classmates of Mr Gatton and Mr Higley have been invited to attend.
