Antioch University to Honor Students, Donors at Annual Grant and Scholarship Reception

Antioch University Santa Barbara will honor students and donors alike at its Annual Grant and Scholarship reception on Wednesday, May 20.

The reception, which is invite only, will recognize the students who have been awarded over $135,000 collectively through this year’s institutional scholarships and grants, as well as the generous donors who made these financial awards possible.

Special recognition will go to Lynn Houston, the recipient of this year’s Distinguished Graduate Award. Houston, who graduated from AUSB in 2011 with a bachelor of arts degree in liberal arts, went on to found A Different Point of View, a nonprofit organization in Santa Barbara that aims to inspire youth through flight, and was recently profiled by both Noozhawk and the AUSB student online magazine The Odyssey.

“My experience at AUSB literally changed the course of my history,” Houston said. “Antioch’s founder, Horace Mann wrote, ‘Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.’ His call to action, along with Antioch Santa Barbara’s undeniable commitment to social justice, inspired me to become my very best self and found A Different Point of View. I am grateful for my time and education at AUSB and extremely humbled to be the first recipient of the Distinguished Graduate Award.”

The 2014-15 AUSB Scholarship and Grant recipients are Avanti Alias, Nieves Antonio, Alexa Aparicio, Nicole Auckerman, Simon Auckerman, Ruby Avila, Ildiko Benyak, Giovanna Bustamante, Matilda Dahlin, Charlotte Dessens, Reina Duran, Di Elman, Amanda Gilbert, MaryLou Hernandez, Johni Hull, Douglas Johnson, McKenzie Kay, Ian King, Marissa Kochan, Cesia Koris, Manoj Kumar Sharma, Maria Lemus, Claudia Martinez, Joan Mayer, Deana Medina, Ryan Moxley, Brittiny Reeves, Jacqueline Robertson, Helen Rosales, Holly Stewart, Genevieve Swords, Karen Taylor, Sarah Villalobos, Rachel Walsh and Cary Young.

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!
