MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - Students from across the Tennessee Valley participated in the 24th annual "See You at the Pole" event on Wednesday morning.

It's a national student-led and student-initiated movement that started in Texas in 1990 and has since spread across the country.

While the event began as one morning of prayer, in many communities it's now part of an entire week of activities.

The theme of this year's event was "Never stop praying."

Students gathered around the flagpoles on their school campuses around 7:00 a.m.

That included students at James Clemens High School in Madison.

Members of the First Priority Club led this event that also featured praise music.

The estimated 75 students in attendance then broke into small groups to pray for schools, friends, family, faculty and our nation.


  • Say What

    Matthew 5. When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 6. But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

    Thanks, “Say What”, for always reminding everyone that anything is subject to interpretation. Meanwhile… PRAY LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT PEOPLE!! (Because it does)
