The Community Action Commission of Santa Barbara County has announced its 2012 Community Action Champions.

The awardees are Patricia Stewart, recently retired chief probation officer for the Santa Barbara County Probation Department; Sylvia Ng, founder of both the Central Coast and Golden Valley Altrusa International service clubs and community fundraiser on behalf of children; and Randy Weiss, vice president of community relations for Santa Barbara Bank & Trust.

Champions are selected because of their profound effect on the greater good of the community and their emphasis on helping those who are most vulnerable.

The honorees are chosen by a committee that includes CAC board members, elected officials and representatives of community agencies and nonprofit programs.
