Success Stories

 

Visalia Medical Clinic

Sycamore Valley Academy

This charter school in Visalia needed to reach out to Hispanic families so the school principal reached out to The Lockwood Agency. TLA designed a bilingual postcard and secured a targeted mailing list; developed a professional television spot; and secured time on key Spanish-language radio stations. The result was a dramatic increase in awareness of the school and participation in the lottery for seats in the next school year.

Peña’s Disposal Services is a forward-thinking, progressive family-owned business offering waste collection and recycling. As part of the company’s focus on education, The Lockwood Agency created an expansive exhibit for AgVentures, a children’s museum at the International Agri-Center in Tulare. The Lockwood Agency developed the concept, including hands-on activities, and designed the entire exhibit. The display focuses on agriculture, in keeping with the mission of AgVentures, but touches on all aspects of recycling in order to educate the next generation of recyclers.


World Ag Expo

For the past 20 years, The Lockwood Agency was an integral part of successfully marketing World Ag Expo, the largest agricultural exposition of its kind. With our help, World Ag Expo became a household name around the globe and makes headlines around the world each year. The Lockwood Agency created the theme and artwork for the 2010 show.


Measure R

Measure R

The Lockwood Agency was a major player in the passage of Measure R, the only new sales tax initiative to pass in California in November 2006. People said it couldn’t be done, but our strategy worked. In less than three months, we put together a successful political campaign that received 67.2 percent voter approval for the one-half cent sales tax for transportation projects.


College of the Sequoias

College of the Sequoias

After hiring The Lockwood Agency, the third time was a charm for College of the Sequoias in its quest to pass two bond measures totaling $128 million. The community college was defeated twice before in its bond measure attempts. Some of the biggest challenges of this campaign included getting voters to back both bonds in separate voting districts in one of the worst economic periods in years. Our strategy worked, with both measures passing overwhelmingly in both voting districts.


Tulare County Workforce Investment Board

Tulare County Workforce Investment Board

As a recipient of recent stimulus funding, The Tulare County Workforce Investment Board called upon The Lockwood Agency to develop a marketing plan just weeks before a big event intended to unveil stimulus-funded training programs for adults and recently laid off workers. In a matter of weeks, we helped our client reach a very specific target audience to attend several Career Connection Expos hosted by the organization. Each event drew hundreds of attendees, providing them with useful information to connect with careers- the ultimate goal of the Tulare County Workforce Investment Board.
