Hudson students gather in droves for See You at the Pole

HUDSON, TX (KTRE) -

By Morgan Thomas - bio | email

HUDSON, TX (KTRE) – This morning East Texas students got to school early for fellowship, prayer and on the Hudson campus, live music.

What started as a grassroots, student-led movement to pray around the campus flag pole has morphed into something much bigger at Hudson ISD. A stage set-up on campus with a live band, T-shirt sales and a donut table. It's not hard to see why this event draws a large crowd.

High school junior Anthony Sanchez decided to come for the first time.

"I came here to help out a friend. She asked me if I could do this and I came," said Sanchez.

As a first-timer, Sanchez says he'll take advantage of the situation by listening and watching what happens.

"To learn more, I guess, about God because I don't really go to church," said Sanchez.

Many students came, not to pray for things or people, but the event. To make it bigger and better every year.

"To get more people out here. To get it as packed as we can get it. To have a good outcome and to have a good time for everybody," said senior Katie Pool.

Senior Ashley Ernst hopes that just by participating she is providing an example to others.

"Try to show people that they have nothing to be embarrassed about, that God is a good name. Everyone should be able to live for him," said Ernst.

Before the bell rang, students grabbed hands creating a huge circle of prayer, supporting each other in the true meaning of student fellowship.
