Students in Sissonville pray anyway
A parent complained to the Kanawha County Board of Education about prayers before football games in Sissonville. Prayers were then banned. But students prayed anyway on Friday night. There were dozens of Sissonville students dressed in purple that stood along the bleachers Friday night before the game and held hands, and said a prayer for the players. A Facebook page called Praying in Kanawha County Schools was set up Friday before the football game, and gathered hundreds of Likes over the weekend.
