UPDATED: ELY – A special tribute event at Ely school memorializing the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks planned has been called off. In an email announcement to local media on Wednesday afternoon, after the Timberjay’s deadline, Ely Memorial High School 6-12 Principal Megan Anderson wrote, “The Ely Student Council 9/11 Event scheduled for September 10th has been canceled. We will commemorate the 20th anniversary of September 11th at the Veteran’s Day ceremony in November.” As reported in this week’s edition of the Timberjay, the event was originally dubbed the “9/11 Never Forget Project,” and was organized by the school student council, in partnership with the politically-conservative Young America’s Foundation. When made aware of the political ramifications of the partnership, ISD 696 officials were quick to dissolve any involvement with the organization. “We are not partnering with the Young America Foundation,” Erie told the Timberjay this week. “What we try to do is to stay apolitical. YAF certainly has a strong political bandwidth on different issues. If it was a politically- liberal action committee or organization, we wouldn’t endorse that either. Or anything in the middle.” Read more about the controversy in the Sept. 10 issue of the Timberjay.
