The school year has just begun; what better time to reflect on the issue of bullying. The problem of bullying in schools is much more serious than we can imagine. According to a 2011 nationwide survey, 20 percent of high school students reported being bullied the previous year.
Recognizing the importance of this issue, Bosshardt Realty has been a major supporter of the local PALS program for over 10 years. Our goal is to place a PALS program in every Alachua County school because every child deserves a school that is inclusive, free of violence and simply a safe place to learn. Our next PALS fundraising effort is a charity golf tournament on Oct. 12 at the Haile Plantation Golf and Country Club.
