Family Service Agency has announced its elected officers for the 2016-17 board of directors, naming Katya Armistead, Ed.D., and Roberta Heter co-presidents. Current board member Molly Carrillo-Walker has been appointed secretary.

“We’re excited about our new leadership,” said Lisa Brabo, Ph.D., executive director of FSA. “These new board appointments bring years of experience in education and community service that will be instrumental in guiding FSA to new heights.”
2016-17 Co-president Katya Armistead, has been employed by UC Santa Barbara for over 25 years.

She currently serves as dean of student life and brings over 30 years of experience in community leadership, including co-founding Youth Making Change, a Santa Barbara County nonprofit organization for teens.

Armistead’s co-president, Roberta Heter, worked for the Lompoc School District for 30 years in various capacities as a teacher and administrator, most recently as principal of Lompoc High School.

She is a current board member and past president of Region XIII of the Association of California School Administrators as well as a member of the Santa Barbara County Board of Education.

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!
