9/11 Flag Ceremony

Friday, September 11, 2020

Matt Salter, Journey Lineworker from Raccoon Service Center, and Darryl Honick, Journey Lineworker from Penn Hills (both recently took the Senior Operator Apprentice role) conducted the flag raising ceremony. Robert Pierce, Sr. Lineworker

from Penn Hills and Workforce development trainer, dedicated the ceremony to our military, and men and women that paid the ultimate price in the 9/11 terrorist attack. Charles Rothhaar, Sr. Lineworker from Preble and Login Richards, Sr. Operator Apprentice from Preble, assisted as groundworkers for Darryl and Matt.

The 2020 – 2021 EDT program students were in attendance (orange hard hats) as well as Preble Lineworkers, Property Services employees, Substation trainers and Underground Splicers.

You can see two poles near each other, one with the flag, and one adjacent. This is to represent the Twin Towers.

Thanks to all those that participated in the ceremony and I want thank to Duquesne Light management for allowing this great tribute to happen on their property.

I also want to thank and remember all first responders for what you do everyday and for what they did on that fateful day 19 years ago.
