Fifth-graders at St. Mary Parish School in Wisconsin, some clad red bandannas in tribute to Welles Crowther's signature item of apparel, display letters they wrote to his parents.

The story of BC alumnus Welles Crowther, who lost his life saving others at the World Trade Center on 9/11, is now inspiring a new generation.

When Deana Brudney, a fifth grade social studies teacher at St. Mary Parish School in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, shared the story of Crowther's heroism with her class, the students began a letter-writing project to express their feelings to his parents, Allison and Jefferson Crowther.

This is what they wrote.
