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.
