RANKIN COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) -Sunday marks 15 years since the 9/11 terror attack.
Several services and memorials are being held Friday and over the weekend to honor those who lost their lives.
Some students at Northwest Rankin honored the victims in a memorial walk. This is the 9th year that the school held the event.
A balloon release was held and the students were joined by Veterans and other service members. Police blocked off a street for students to hold a Freedom Walk.
