2012 ‘See You at the Pole’ in North Liberty

NORTH LIBERTY– Heritage Christian School students participated in the national “See You at the Pole” event Tuesday Sept. 25, the day before thousands of other students from around the country will gather to pray around their schools’ flagpoles. As one would expect at a Christian school, students at Heritage have heavily participated in the national event in past years. Christian students who attend the area’s public junior highs, however, have sometimes been reluctant to participate because of fear of being singled out or intimidated by the lack of numbers around their flagpoles.

Food For Thought

I first became aware of cheerleaders when I was in junior high school. The only requirements for achieving this envied status seemed to be that you look adorable in the short skirt, baggy sweater and saddle-shoes, and that you could jump up and down, yell a lot, and generally attract attention. I didn’t know, at the time, that cheerleaders were required to audition for the role. These were called “try-outs” and girls practiced, along with their friends, for weeks ahead of time.

Walkin'

We met Dana early on the second day, a 41-mile bicycle ride from Cumberland to Little Orleans, Md. We happened to talk in the morning and realized we all were heading the same destination.
