Julie Whalen Schuetz has been elected to the board of directors of the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.

Schuetz is a corporate sales executive at Citrix Online, an active community volunteer and she follows in the footsteps of her mother, Patty Whalen, with her service on the Scholarship Foundation board. She attended Pepperdine University on a volleyball scholarship, earning second-team All-West Coast Conference honors in 1992. She lives in Carpinteria with her husband, son and daughter.

In 2007-08, the Scholarship Foundation’s general, administrative and fundraising costs were only 6.2 percent of total expenses. Charity Navigator, the largest independent evaluator of American charities, has awarded the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara its top four-star rating for six consecutive years, based on organizational efficiency and financial management. Fewer than 2 percent of charities nationwide have received this honor.

Since 1962, the Scholarship Foundation has inspired, encouraged and supported Santa Barbara County students in their pursuit of college, graduate and vocational education through financial aid advising and the granting of scholarships.

The Scholarship named two additional board members this week: Janet Garufis and Christie Glanville.

— Rebecca Anderson is development director at the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.

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!
