The Board of Education of the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) presented the inaugural Outstanding Community Partner Award to Loma Linda University Health for its longstanding support of the District’s 46,000 students.

Loma Linda was honored on Tuesday, September 20 during the Board of Education meeting. Dr. J.C. Belliard, representing Loma Linda University Health, received the award, a custom, mahogany plaque made by students in the Bing Wong Elementary School iSTEAM Lab.

Loma Linda’s steadfast support touches all corners of SBCUSD. Doctors and medical students have provided training for hundreds of SBCUSD students. And at least one of those students used the knowledge she gained from Loma Linda’s training to save the life of a loved one who was having a medical emergency.

Loma Linda also supports our families through free immunization clinics and food pantries. And this past weekend, Loma Linda University Health kicked off a new effort to get young people and families more involved in outdoor recreational activities.

“Partners like Loma Linda University Health are invaluable because they help us better serve families and students,” said Ginger Ontiveros, the District’s Chief Communications and Community Engagement Officer. “We are grateful to have them in our corner.”

Loma Linda University Health has also worked closely with students in the Indian Springs High School’s Academy of Manufacturing and Product Development Design pathway to help students gain experience in designing and making prosthetic limbs.

SBCUSD launched the Outstanding Community Partner Award as a way to recognize the contributions of its many educational partners. The award will be presented monthly to a deserving organization.
