PCHS Congratulates Olivia Sawyer

Olivia is the Top Shooter on the PCHS NJROTC Air Rifle Team. She recently led the team to its first ever appearance in the Area Six Rifle Match in Lexington, SC in January. At this match, against 110 other competitors, she won the overall individual competition as the Area Six Top Shot. She also scored the highest marks in the Prone Position. Based on this win, she qualified to shoot against the very best shots in all of the USMC & Navy JROTC Programs. This past weekend, 14-16 February, Olivia represented Pamlico County High School and NJROTC Area Six at the USMC & Navy Air Rifle Service Championship in Anniston, Alabama. She shot very well and hopes to use this valuable experience to win this competition next year and shoot  against the best shots in all of the Junior ROTC programs. Once again, well done to Olivia!

On Tuesday, April 22nd, PCHS partnered with local emergency service agencies to present the "VIP for a VIP" program. The VIP for a VIP (Vehicle Injury Prevention for a Very Important Person) program consists of testimony from area emergency services, video, and Powerpoint presentations in the school auditorium followed by an outside reenactment of a fatal teen accident in the parking lot. Students and parents are encouraged to complete and return the "VIP Contract for Life" which asks the student to adhere to safe driving, a zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol, and calling the parent before driving impaired. The parent is asked to respond respectfully to assure the student gets home safely.
