Ala. high school students visit superintendent’s office, ask return of school prayer

ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) — About a dozen Alexandria High School students went to the Calhoun County School Board office to deliver a message that they want weekly prayer and daily Bible reading resumed over their school’s public address system.

The students went to superintendent Judy Stiefel’s office on Monday. They organized after one of their classmates said the activity was unconstitutional.

They were told that they will be able to share their opinions later this week at the board’s regular meeting.

Courtney Vannest, a senior at the school, and three others prepared statements they now plan to read at the meeting.

Stiefel said students are welcome to speak, but prayer will not be permitted over the intercom system because of U.S. Supreme Court rulings.
