Wednesday was “See You At The Pole” day across the nation. Students at Red River High gathered about 7:30 am to celebrate before classes. A large group of students listened to inspirational speakers, sang songs, and saluted the flag with posting of the colors.
Sagar Patel gave a brief history of the observance. He noted that gathering at the flag pole before school was started in Texas by students. Since the early 1990s the event has grown to involve about three million students in the US and around the world today.
The opening prayer was offered by Gakerreon McDonald. Joshua Loftin read the scripture and delivered the devotional. Teanna Eason led the song. And Charli Williams closed the program by thanking everyone for coming this year. Williams closed with prayer.
