Montecito Rotary, SBCC Foundation Present Scholarships to 11 Students

The Rotary Club of Montecito Foundation, in coordination with the Santa Barbara City College Foundation, recently presented $1,000 scholarships to 11 deserving Santa Barbara City College students.

Nine scholarships were awarded to students in Career Technical Education Programs and two were awarded to students with the intent of transferring to a four-year institution.

The Rotary Club of Montecito has been providing a growing number of scholarships to SBCC students since 2007, with funds being disbursed through the SBCC Foundation. Annually, the Rotary Club sponsors a luncheon held in SBCC’s John Dunn Gourmet Dining Room to recognize the outstanding dedication of selected students.

Congratulations to the 2014 Rotary Club of Montecito scholarship recipients:

» Chris Carroll Memorial Scholarship — Amanda Allen, Theatre Arts

» Community West Bank Scholarship — Esther Gutierrez, Computer Applications and Office Management

» Martin and Julia Koobation Scholarship — Daniela Perez, Vocational Nursing

Students are nominated by a faculty member within their field of study; nominees show outstanding determination and drive to succeed and are leaders within their discipline and the broader community.

In addition to an extensive transfer curriculum, SBCC offers a variety of programs and courses in career technical education. These include short-duration skills competency and departmental award programs, certificates of achievement and two-year associate in science degree programs.
