Of Faith and Friendship
Southern Boone students find common ground through God
I worked at an Applebee's while I was a student in Columbia. There, I had the pleasure of meeting a small-town youth group that sat in my section every Wednesday night for more than a year. I decided to explore their relationship with one another beyond the dinner table for one of my capstone projects. The teenagers, from Ashland, Missouri attend the same high school, play sports together and call each other their best friends, allowing their faith to create a strong bond between them.
