LUCERNE VALLEY • Four longtime residents made an emotional plea during last Wednesday’s school board meeting to change the name of the local elementary school in honor of the late Julia Bell.
Roadrunners Jo Richards, Pam Hart, along with Hart’s husband Woody and Jerry Byars, proposed renaming Lucerne Valley Elementary School to Julia Bell Elementary School.
“I would like to see her name go on the elementary school,” said Richards, “Julia made life better for all of us.”
