Elizabeth Winterhalter has been elected president of the Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons board of directors. Founded in 1971, the nonprofit organization fosters growth and improves the quality of junior tennis throughout Santa Barbara. Among other programs, the Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons helps at-risk-children in fourth through sixth grade with after-school tutoring and introduces them to the sport.

Winterhalter is vice president, mortgage loan officer at Bank of Santa Barbara, 12 E. Figueroa St. A former Santa Barbara business owner, she spent 12 years in the San Francisco Bay Area as president of a marketing consulting firm and as a personal loan consultant for a boutique real estate financing and investment firm. She returned to Santa Barbara in 2005 when Bank of Santa Barbara opened.

An avid outdoor enthusiast, Winterhalter is also president of the Coastal Housing Partnership’s board of directors and she earned a bachelor’s degree in English from UCSB.

“Tennis is more than a sport for a lifetime,” said Winterhalter. “It’s a sport that transcends everything in life. It teaches sportsmanship, etiquette, teamwork, discipline, self-reliance, physical fitness and more. And it provides life skills that are important for personal and business relations.

“Besides, it’s a lot of fun, too! I am honored to serve on an organization that not only that gives to the community but gets the community equally involved in return.”

In addition to Winterhalter, the patrons’ board includes Dianne Young-Porinish as newly elected vice president, Mark Basham, Megan Cotich, Marty Davis, Steve Geremia, David Grokenberger, Jerry Hatchett, Ferenc Hodosy, John Kinsella, Don Logan, John Long, Rich Powell and Chuck Santry.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
