MANORVILLE - Some Long Island students are creating a memorial with a piece of 9/11 history.

Chris Marzuk, the assistant superintendent of Eastport-South Manor Schools, says he heard that some pieces of rubble from the World Trade Center attacks were being given out to organizations that planned memorials.

Marzuk requested a piece and last week was given the go-ahead to pick out a steel beam. The beam will be placed in front of the high school as part of a memorial that officials and students hope will be ready for the 10th anniversary of the attacks next year.
