Keeping up with the Cougars
September 11th Edition
Never forget ...
Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.
– President George W. Bush

Something to think about ...
Above and beyond ...
How's this for a story ... A CNHS student accidentally threw out a very expensive medical device in an ordinary brown paper lunch bag, and doesn't realize it until she is on her way home on the school bus. Parents are at a total loss for what to do so they reach out to the nurse's office. The nurse calls Big Ed wondering if there might still be a chance that the garbage is retrievable. You can imagine what happens next ... Big Ed climbs into the dumpster on one of the hottest days of the summer and starts pulling out trash bags from lunch. 5 members of the custodial crew start tearing through garbage bags and tearing open trashed brown paper lunch bags in hope of finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. And since we all love a happy ending, surely you must know that the device is found and returned to an awestruck family, with no words to describe their gratitude.
It never ceases to amaze what level people will rise to in the best interest of a child. You think you've seen it all ... and then this happens.
Shout outs of appreciation go out to Big Ed, Gail, Eileen, Patti, and custodial crew members Alex, Rick, Joan, Jim, Steve, and Henry.
