Ten Santa Barbara City College students have been named recipients of the Sara Evelyn Smith Scholarships in Theater Arts.

Established by the late Sara Smith, a local resident and philanthropist, the $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually to SBCC theater arts students who attended local high schools, maintain high academic achievement, and demonstrate performance talent and experience.

The winners recently performed brief monologues from artistic works of their choice at the SBCC Jurkowitz Theatre.

Joan Galvan is a public information officer for Santa Barbara City College.

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!
