About 30 students from Chino Valley High School met at their school's flagpole Sept. 24 to pray together, sing songs and strengthen their faith at an event called "See You at the Pole." Alyson Alexander played her guitar and led the singing of the group, then several students prayed aloud. They prayed for their schools, students, teachers, the country and the world. One student specifically prayed for the finances of the school district to improve. Wanting to share their faith with others, one student asked God to give them "the courage to stand strong." Similar events happened at schools across the United States and the world. Many students also met at rallies that evening at their churches or at a larger gathering at the Courthouse Plaza in Prescott.
