No more school prayer (November 30, 2016)

Action was taken by FFRF after it was informed that Hartford (Kan.) High School’s mandatory drunk-driving awareness assembly had opened with a prayer, led by the school’s Athletic Christian Team sponsor Mike Watkins.

FFRF Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel wrote to Superintendent Michael Argabright to inform him of the violation.

A response dated Nov. 30 informed FFRF that the principal of the building where the assembly had been held had addressed the issue with Watkins and that the prayer would not happen again.
