Stephenville ISD students will be participating in the global event, See You at the Pole, on Wednesday, Sept. 25. The event will include students from Henderson Junior High and Stephenville High School who will gather at their respected flagpoles and commence in group prayer.
The event began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with 10 students praying at their school. It has grown by word of mouth, announcements at youth rallies and churches, and the Internet and has started occurring internationally. In 2005, over two million students in the United States participated. Students from countries including Cote d'Ivoire, Ecuador, Indonesia, South Korea, Nigeria, Portugal, and South Africa among others participating.
Later that night, First Baptist Church Stephenville will host an area wide Saw You at the Pole Concert inside the church's sanctuary. The entertainment will include the Small Town America Tour with Seventh Day Slumber, Manic Drive and Submission Red. The concert will take place from 6-8:30 p.m. and is free.
