Author talks to service club about positive thinking


The Ponte Vedra High School Sharks and Minnows Service Club invited best-selling author and Ponte Vedra Beach resident, Jon Gordon, to speak to the children at the Rhoda Martin After School Program this week. Gordon brought The Energy Bus For Kids and its message of positive thinking to the kids.

Gordon’s principles have been put to the test by numerous NFL, NBA and college coaches and teams, Fortune 500 companies, school districts, hospitals and nonprofits.

The Ponte Vedra High Sharks and Minnows Club has 40 members who volunteer weekly at after-school programs at the Rhoda Martin Center and the Carver Community Center in Jacksonville Beach.
