G. Michael Shor was recently elected to the board of managers of the Santa Barbara Family YMCA, where he is concurrently serving his second term as president of the Youth & Government program.

In February, he will be representing the seven-branch Channel Islands YMCA in Sacramento as vice chairman of the newly pioneered youth political party system at the California YMCA Model Legislature & Court conference.

Shor is the first youth recipient of the Santa Barbara Family YMCA’s prestigious Order of Merit award, annually bestowed for community leadership and civic responsibility since 1978. His outreach activities include restoration service trips to post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans and an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico.

A senior honor student at Dos Pueblos High School, Shor also plays in the Jazz Band and serves in the student senate. He plans to pursue a career in international relations.

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!
