For as long as he can remember, Caesar Franco has loved being on stage. Whether playing a small part in a play, being part of an ensemble or acting in a short film, he stays involved with the theater as much as possible.

Majoring in theater arts at Santa Barbara City College has provided Franco with the opportunity to fine-tune his craft, working with great directors and having, in his opinion, some of the best acting experiences of his life.

At first, Franco was not sure he wanted to pursue college after high school. But realizing an education would open doors for his future, enrolled at SBCC.

Now, he remains impressed by the welcoming atmosphere, and is happy to be surrounded by positive students all working toward similar goals. In pursing an education, Franco is making his family proud, as well as himself.

“What I love best about Santa Barbara City College is the caring professors and the dedicated students I have met,” Franco said. “From my time at SBCC, it has become really clear to me how important my education is, and how necessary my degree will be in the future.”

Franco shares his SBCC story in a short video available by clicking here.

Just like Franco, there are many SBCC students pursuing their passions — everything from nursing to culinary arts to mathematics.

During the month of April, the SBCC Foundation is running its annual Campaign for Student Success, and is seeking the broadest possible participation from the community. Funds raised during this time enrich the academic experience.

When you support the campaign, you invest in students — the future of Santa Barbara. Make a donation today by clicking here.

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!
