The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise recently honored Daniel Sotelo as El Puente Community School Student of the Month for April.

Teacher Sara Romanus proudly spoke of why Sotelo deserved this honor for the second time!

Sotelo is planning to attend Santa Barbara City College and later transfer to UCSB with a major in digital arts/film-video production and a minor in English.

Sotelo ’s dream is to combine his love of writing with his love of film production. He realizes this will take years of work, but he is determined to make his dream a reality and make the most of every opportunity.

Positive acknowledgment and a plaque are given to each student in honor of the work he or she has done to improve attendance and grades while attending El Puente School. This is a proud moment for students and their parents. Congratulations.

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!
