On June 6, 2002 The Houston Chronicle featured an article on the Muslim Student Association at Westfield High School in Texas. When the group "formed three years ago at Westfield High School, it was a low-profile organization with a purpose of informing people about the Islamic faith... After the attacks on the World Trade Center last fall and the radical attempts to attach Islam to the terrorist acts, the group took on a larger role, although its mission remained the same... Months after the attacks, the association continues its work and the campus continues to embrace the cultural offerings of groups like MSA. Westfield recently hosted the district's second annual Diversity Forum."
