(Victor Valley)–LAMAR Outdoor Advertising supports the Celebration of Black History Month.  If you are driving North on the 1-15 you’ll notice the beautiful digital billboard right before the Bear Valley Road exit.

This year in recognition of Black History Month, Lamar Advertising has provided a PSA for tps, Creative Expression announcing their “Dreamers, Visionaries and Leaders” Black History Month special publication.  In partnership for four years with Gi & Associates and the Daily Press, tps (a non-profit Cultural Arts Foundation) has helped produce a 32-page special section inserted into the Daily Press and distributed to the Daily Press’ Newspapers In Education program.  “The donation of this PSA is exciting and will definitely help provide awareness  of our Black History Month projects to the community,” says, Theresa Polley-Shellcroft , founder and president of tps, Creative Expressions, Inc. Non Profit Cultural Arts Foundation

This year’s Dreamers, Visionaries and Leaders  insert  will be in the Daily Press on Saturday, February 11th.   The publication includes many articles, historical facts, and features the “Dreamers, Visionaries and Leaders” which profiles 20 local High Desert citizens who have made outstanding community contributions and professional accomplishments.  The publication’s presenting sponsor is Victorville Motors.

The LAMAR billboard will also feature an announcement of the “Dreamers, Visionaries and Leaders…  Know Your History” display at the Jerry Lewis County Government Center in Hesperia.  The posters and professionally produced DVD presentation will be on display the entire month of February during normal business hours.  Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt once again serves as the display host with presenting sponsors Heritage Victor Valley Medical Group and WalMart .

The intent of the “Dreamers, Visionaries, and Leaders”  Black History Month Celebration  is to share and educate  our community  about the vast and varied contributions that Blacks/African Americans have made to our American history.

“The project partnerships that we have been able to develop with corporate and local business is a great confirmation that as a community, we are becoming more inclusive in recognizing and celebrating what is often an overlooked aspect and truth of our American history,” says Polley-Shellcroft.
