Woodie Club Funds Automotive Tech Scholarship at SBCC

Santa Barbara club members will bring their vintage cars to campus Thursday to present a check for $1,000

The Santa Barbara Woodie Club will present a check for $1,000 to the Foundation for SBCC to fund a scholarship for SBCC students majoring in automotive service and technology.

Club members will meet on the West Campus at 4 p.m. Thursday with their restored vintage cars.

The Santa Barbara Woodie Club created the scholarship to help students in the community succeed in a field about which they are passionate. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage SBCC automotive technology students who have financial need to complete their education and become professionals in their field.

The scholarship is available to all students meeting eligibility requirements, which consider a student’s motivation, financial need and academic achievement. It will be awarded to a student (to be determined) at the annual scholarship reception at SBCC on May 14.

The automotive service and technology program at SBCC prepares students for a career in the automotive repair industry. SBCC offers both a certificate of completion and an associate’s degree in the program.

The Santa Barbara Chapter of the National Woodie Club, led by president Bill Sampson, promotes interest in woodies, educate owners and the public on their history and beauty, and provides an association through which owners and enthusiasts may exchange information.

The 10th annual “Woodies at the Beach” car show, in which the chapter will host an all-day festival for enthusiasts and the public, is planned for later this year.

— Stefanie Davis is the marketing and communications manager for the Foundation for SBCC.

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!
