Kiwanis Club of Santa Barbara Presents Annual Scholarship Awards

The Kiwanis Club of Santa Barbara presented its annual Kiwanis Scholarship award to several local high school students. Five students were selected from the 125 scholarship applications received this year.

Seniors receiving $1,000 scholarships were Olivia LaPierre from Carpinteria High School, Jessica Reyes from San Marcos High School, Rachel Bishop from Santa Barbara High School, and Amy Chen and Mallary McCauley from Dos Pueblos High School.

Each application was carefully evaluated based on five criteria to select the best and most worthy students. As Kiwanis is a service organization, the most important criterion was community service.

All 125 applicants had provided many hours of service to their communities. In addition to community service, applicants were also evaluated on the basis of their academic standing, financial need, personal vision and student activity.

The Kiwanis Club also presented the Hope of America award, which recognizes students in junior high school who have demonstrated academic accomplishments, leadership, self-discipline, and ethical and moral character. These students have exhibited outstanding citizenship traits and are future leaders.

The winners for this year were William Oakley from Santa Barbara Junior High, Erin Mahan from Goleta Valley Junior High, Loren Young from La Cumbre Junior High, and Eveline Mayner from La Colina Junior High.

Kiwanis Club of Santa Barbara meets at noon Wednesdays at the Mesa Café.

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!
