SBCC to Mark 100 Years with Community Celebration

Its centennial kickoff event will include works by the Jazz Group and poet laureate David Starkey

SBCC invites the community to a Centennial Kickoff Celebration marking the college’s 100th anniversary, from noon to 1:15 p.m. Aug. 20 at SBCC’s LaPlaya Stadium.

Superintendent/President Dr. Andreea Serban will make introductory remarks, and professor Joe White will serve as program master of ceremonies.

Two special pieces of work created exclusively for the centennial will be presented for the first time: the SBCC Music Department’s Jazz Group will play “Centennial Fanfare,” and professor David Starkey, Santa Barbara’s poet laureate, will read his Centennial poem.

In a lighthearted turn, White and colleagues will present a humorous look at college and historical highlights since SBCC’s founding. Light refreshments will be served.

SBCC will commemorate its centennial throughout the 2009-10 academic year with ongoing activities and events. Established in 1909, SBCC is one of the oldest community colleges in California.

— Joan Galvan is a public information officer 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!
