The sun is shining and beckoning Ashley Houston, a Southern California Edison technical planner, to come outside.
But before leaving the office, she adds some final touches to the construction plans she has been designing for a project to improve SCE’s power grid by upgrading power lines and replacing older utility poles in Victorville.
“That way we are creating a safer, more reliable way to get power to customers in our growing communities,” said Houston, who is based in SCE’s San Bernardino Regional Office. “By working with field engineers and civil inspectors, planners can accurately design the project to be completed in the field.”
Alumni sweethearts Victor and Karen Suarez welcomed their first daughter Maia Victoria Suarez on August 9, 2015.
VVAPL Humane Society, the first animal shelter in the Victor Valley, serving the community since 1958, is pleased to announce the promotion of Terry Saenz to Media & Community Relations Director.
Saenz started as a public relations volunteer in January 2010. “Since this was a new position, we didn’t have a set job description, but Terry hit the ground running becoming active in the community, partnering with Adelanto Animal Care & Control to implement an animal education program, designing promotional material, engaging supporters on social media, and so much more to become an amazing advocate for our animals,” said Executive Director Kathy Williamson. By September 2012, her volunteer responsibilities grew to a paid position.
As the Media & Community Relations Director, Saenz will focus on building relationships in the community, program development to aid pet parents, finding innovative ways to increase pet adoptions and continue to be a voice in the community for animal welfare, keeping VVAPL’s commitment of always doing what’s best for the animals as a top priority.
