The Law Enforcement Club helps build relationships between the students and law enforcement, while also providing a more in-depth look at the law enforcement profession. “Hopefully, the members of this club will be future members of SJSO!” Said the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office in a Facebook post.

The One Love Chapter at PVHS is in its inaugural year. This chapter was founded by Madison Schemitz. Earlier this year she was the victim of a stabbing in Ponte Vedra.

She has taken her traumatic experience and turned it into good by starting this chapter at her high school. One Love Foundation is a national non-profit organization with the goal of ending relationship abuse.
