They did so by delivering homemade baked goods to firefighters at Fire Station #6.
That's the station that takes care of the area of the city in which the high school is located.
Students say they want to thank firefighters for their continued dedication to keeping the community safe, and the Sept. 11, 2001 tragedy reminds them how important firefighters are to our community.
Taylor Caswell, president of the Rider Student Council, says, "It seems so long ago now, but it was such a hard time for so many people and it still is remembered, so we want to give thanks for everything that they did."
Justin Berardi, a Wichita Falls firefighter who enjoyed some of the treats from StuCo members, says, "September 11th for us reminds us of the sacrifices people made at the towers. It's just overwhelming that people remember that and honor us."
The students also gave the firefighters an appreciation banner so they can be reminded of the students' appreciation all year long.
