Lue Productions Gives Back

lue

Hey Inland Empire, it’s ya’ girl back with “What It Do with Lue!” So many families have been displaced and left out in the cold due to the downfall of the economy, and I truly believe that you haven’t lived until your experience the joy of helping someone in need. With that being said, our entertainment company, along with several others in the community and neighboring cities that came together to provide and distribute Thanksgiving meals for the homeless population in downtown San Bernardino.
We are living in harsh times and it is all about survival. While driving down the streets in downtown San Bernardino you will spot several makeshift homes located in dirt fields and under freeway passes. Our mission was to prepare and pass out 300 or more hot meals. I can’t begin to tell you how quick the plan manifested, and how giving people were.
I want to give a special thanks to the artists, entertainment companies, local businesses and LUE Productions artists (Paul Douglas and Speaker Junkiez), Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce, Fanbase Entertainment, Team SP (Sdot Freaky, Daneisha and Nya Banxx), PAC Entertainment (Misfit), B.A.F. Family (Chubbs), Westside Story Newspaper, Krystal Yvonne, Knock it Off Ladies Car Club, Stree Free Living (Lea Noir) Cold Cutz Barbershop (Mike), Freddie Washington Photography, Stene’s Southern Kitchen (Ruby Holmes), Three Kings Catering (Lawanna Lee) and Youth Build Charter School.

Moreno Valley Wins Golden Ball State Award for Excellence

 

MORENO VALLEY, CA – The California School Boards Association (CSBA) recently recognized the Moreno Valley Unified School District as a winner of the prestigious Golden Bell Award for 2013. This award recognizes the academic success of Health Careers Academy on the campus of Canyon Springs High School. The CSBA recognized 59 public school programs in the state this year. It created the Golden Bell Awards program in 1980 to recognize innovative and successful programs that make a difference in students’ success, and focus on meeting the needs of all students. Health Careers Academy is the oldest of several vocational academies Moreno Valley Unified School District has created.
While students in these programs receive a well-rounded education, by following a recommended pathway of courses, they can either begin an entry-level career in their area of interest, or more easily transition to a college or university level education in the health career field after high school graduation. Students enter the Health Careers Academy as sophomores. In the academies, students have the same core requirements, such as English, social studies, and science as they would in a regular high school program, but take these courses from teachers at the academy. Students also take vocational education courses through the academy.  In the introductory course, Introduction to Health Care, students learn medical technology, learn how to take vital signs, research health careers, develop resumes and are certified in first aid and CPR. The academy also offers extra-curricular organizations.
The students usually have between 160 to 240 hours of internship experience by the time they graduate from high school. In the 2012-2013 school year, 27 of the 31 seniors had internships with either Riverside County Regional Medical Center, the Riverside County ROP/CTE, Charter Hospice or medical clinics.
“The Canyon Springs Health Careers Academy has consistently produced students with a plethora of knowledge, genuine concern about all health issues and most importantly a passion to be proactive and responsive,” Dr. White said. “The level of student engagement and compassion for others has propelled this program above the rest. Students participating in this program live and breathe commitment to health.”
