Students join in ‘See You at the Pole’
By Annette Tait
Nearly 20 Center-Stanton students joined hands around the flagpole in front of the school last week as part of “See You at the Pole,” a global effort by students to lift their schools up in prayer.
The seed for the local event was planted when a group of Center United Methodist youth heard about See You at the Pole from their Missouri Valley Parish youth group leader, Kayla Buckley, and decided they wanted to join in.
“The kids just ran with it,” said Kisa Kindsvogel, who helps with the youth group for ages seven through 12.
A Facebook event page was started and the students spread information about the event through word of mouth. Some kids heard about it that same morning and came out to join the group.
