PVHS’s Student Council recently received an Outstanding Activity Program Award from the California Association of Student Leaders, making them one of 41 schools statewide.

Throughout the year, the 39-student leaders have participated in professional training, provided their peers with a voice in administration, united the campus with common experiences, used traditions to create a sense of pride, promoted achievement and offered safe and inclusive social opportunities.

They have also encouraged a culture of service, honored diversity, communicated vision clearly, concentrated on character education, and created lasting student connections.

“Getting the award makes me feel good, because it represents the impact our Student Council has on our campus,’’ said Student Council President Joe Codamos. “And that is what it is all about – connecting our students to PVHS and making them feel good about coming to school.’’

More than 300 schools statewide applied for the award, according to Panther Director of Activities Lisa Walters.
