Teen tailors banners in honor of HOPE, heroes

Gaithersburg / Montgomery Village / Germantown / Poolesville

TALK OF THE TOWN
Silver Spring’s Vanessa Johnson, 17, a rising senior at Elizabeth Seton High School and a longtime volunteer with the nonprofit Hope worldwide of the Mid-Atlantic, commemorated Sept. 11, 2001, with her project, “Banner of HOPE,” which she presented to local firefighters as an expression of gratitude for their continued selfless and critical work. On Thursday, two banners — a collage that Johnson designed depicting the heroic efforts of first responders 13 years ago and a message of thanks signed by members of the Montgomery County Church of Christ, where Johnson attends — were presented to Chief Tony Bencosme during a special presentation at Fire Station #28 in Derwood.
