SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. - Sept. 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year and according to the National Education Association, approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying. In hopes of raising awareness and funding to help empower students, the Southern California Schools Joint Powers Authorities, (SCSJPA) is hosting their 8th Annual Golf Tournament on Monday, October 13, 2014.
