The Lucerne Valley Unified School District is looking at hiring a video company with Hollywood credentials to produce a series of videos aimed at boosting enrollment.
“Sometimes you need to toot your own horn and get it out there,” Supt. Suzette Davis said at Wednesday’s school board meeting.
The plan would entail contracting producer/director Hugo Pallete and his three-member team of industry professionals, according to a PowerPoint presentation by Chief Business Official Billy Wessell.

On Oct. 2, the Lucerne Valley FFA was able to take four teams to Littlerock High School. There, they participated in a contest called the ‘Opening Closing Ceremony,’ a section competition attracting FFA programs from other high school programs throughout the High Desert.
It was an amazing experience for the Lucerne Valley freshmen, as well as the others. They met new people, and got a little taste of competition and what will come of their first year in FFA. At the end, Novice Team 2 took home the first place plaque.
