Victor Valley Museum recognizes City of Hesperia
A total of 360 people attended a special program at the Victor Valley Museum on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 to recognize the contributions of the City of Hesperia and the Hesperia Unified School District to the museum’s programming and operations.
“This event is an outstanding example of how the Victor Valley Museum and its community partners can work together to provide exciting services to people throughout our county,” said Leonard Hernandez, Deputy Executive Officer of the County of San Bernardino.
Among the dignitaries present were San Bernardino County First District Supervisor Robert A. Lovingood and First District Field Representative Regina Bell; Mayor of Hesperia Eric Schmidt and City Council member Russ Blewett; Hesperia Superintendent of Schools David McLaughlin, School Board President Eric Swanson, and School Board Member Nicole Childs; Hesperia Recreation and Parks Board Member Rebecca Swanson; Chamber President CEO Brad Letner; and Hesperia City Manager Mide Podegracz.
Visitors enjoyed an interactive dinosaur presentation and participated in dinosaur-related crafts at five craft stations. “Programs such as these, which engage families while supporting educational goals and STEM concepts, are among those that are made possible by the support of the City of Hesperia and the Hesperia School District,” said Hernandez.
"The Victor Valley Museum is an excellent resource for the community to engage in learning about local history," said Kristin Stevens, San Bernardino County Museum acting curator of education.
This special event at the Victor Valley Museum and the County Museum’s other exciting events and exhibits reflect the effort by the Board of Supervisors to achieve the Countywide Vision by celebrating arts, culture, and education in the county, creating quality of life for residents and visitors.
