For over fifteen years, Paoli High School has held a flagpole prayer, and the tradition was continued in the morning of Wednesday, September 25. ‘See You at the Pole’ is a student-organized and led prayer movement for schools, students, communities and nations. All students are welcome to attend this flagpole prayer, and an average of 40 students attend the event yearly. Students from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) are in charge of leading the event.
“Simply gathering students around the flagpole is a visual reminder of what their prayer focus is,” said FCA Sponsor Chris Lindley.
Along with PHS, many other schools around the world have this tradition.
“See You At The Pole’ is done all across the country on the 4th Wednesday of September. It is also done internationally by different nations across the world,” said Lindley.
