Auburn High School and the Illinois National Guard are teaming up to host the first AHS 9/11 Stair Salute.

The 9/11 Memorial Stair Salute is a way for students and community members to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives on September 11, 2001. Participants who register will climb 343 steps in memory of the 343 New York City firefighters who perished 20 years ago this year.
