Students in the Abington Heights and Lackawanna Trail school districts both participated in See You at the Pole on Wednesday, Sept. 25.
See You at the Pole (SYATP), according to its website, began in 1990 with a small group of teenagers in Burleson, Texas, who were “broken before God and burdened for their friends. Compelled to pray, they drove to three different schools that night. Not knowing exactly what to do, they went to the school flagpoles and prayed for their friends, schools and leaders.” Now, more than three million students in over 20 countries participate, according to the website.
Locally, students at Abington Heights High School and Lackawanna Trail High School gathered at their schools’ flagpoles to pray before class last week.
