Diana Servin Shares Her SBCC Story in Support of Campaign for Student Success

From a very young age, Diana Servin enjoyed school. But it was not always easy for her.

With parents who only spoke Spanish, Servin grew up having to teach herself English while navigating her own school relationships with teachers. She joined a science club in third grade, and from the projects they tackled, developed a passion for the subject. She went on to do well, earning good grades in both junior high and high school.

Knowing college was something she wanted to pursue, Servin is today a proud student at Santa Barbara City College.

Self-motivated and determined, Servin knows her education at SBCC will be the foundation for her ability to move on to a four-year university, and then medical school. She is hoping to become either an obstetrician or pediatrician, and knows her education will allow her to provide the best quality care for patients in the Santa Barbara community.

“I know if I want something for myself in the future, I have to work hard and stay motivated,” she said. “I am getting a really good education at SBCC. The knowledge I gain from this experience will always be with me.”

Servin shares her SBCC story in a short video available by clicking here.

Just like Servin, 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!
