Annual SYATP builds appreciation for prayer (VIDEO)

Unlike an average day at FC, students woke up early along with many other students across the nation to pray as a community for their friends, teachers, nation, world and school. At 7 a.m. over 50 students gathered in the Ground Zero quad area to pray for the anual See You at the Pole (SYATP), Sept. 26.

SYATP started in 1990, where a small group of students were allowed to pray, and since 2005, the event has grown to over 2 million participants all regions of the nation. SYATP has been marked a national event, which is always the fourth week in September.

Principal Todd Bennett expected more from SYATP and left feeling a little dissatisfied at the turnout. Bennett hopes next year will bring a better outcome.

“I wish there would have been a better turnout,” Bennett said. “I hoped to see more students and teachers there. Although, it was nice to see some students out there that I didn’t expect to show up. I know as a private school we have the opportunity to to pray openly whenever we want, but I still think we should take advantage of every opportunity we get. Hopefully next year we’ll get more student involvement.”

The campus high school has 196 students and 58 participated in SYATP this year.
