A prayer walk was held this week at South Laurel Middle School for students to pray for the safety of the school and first responders. When the end of the school day bell rang, about 20 students joined to walk around the entire school and say prayers for school safety. Shawn Sizemore is a science teacher at South Laurel. He says two students approached him last week to ask if they could organize the prayer walk. Sizemore said both faculty and students have seen an increased presence of school resource officers since the recent school shootings in the country.
