Public Invited to STEM Lab Dedication In Honor of Bud Biggs

The Lucerne Valley Unified School District would like to invite you to the dedication of our new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) lab to H.O. "Bud" Biggs.
Bud Biggs was the singular choice for the lab’s name by the LVUSD school board due to his immense generosity and dedication to Lucerne Valley students and teachers. In 2007, Biggs helped found the Mitsubishi Cement Corporation Educational Foundation, which has contributed many thousands of dollars annually to the 5th grade Science Camp, senior scholarships, and mini grants given to students and educators. Funding for the foundation began with an initial contribution from Mitsubishi Cement and continues to grow each year through donations from the company, the local community, student-driven fundraising efforts, and participation in the annual “Ride in the Rocks” bike tour fundraising event.
Biggs began his career at Kaiser Cement in Cupertino in 1962, earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1980 while working for the company, and in 1986 — after a brief period in Texas — was hired to be the production manager of Kaiser Cement’s Lucerne Valley plant. Soon after, he was promoted to plant manager, a role he maintained when Mitsubishi Cement acquired Kaiser Cement.
The STEM lab will provide a laboratory environment where Lucerne Valley elementary school students can conduct simulations and experiments in a controlled environment. That hands-on experience will benefit the students in school and help with college, training and career choices.
Our dedication event will take place on Thursday, September 6th at 9:00 am at Lucerne Valley Elementary School located at 10788 Barstow Road in Lucerne Valley, CA.
We look forward to seeing you there.
