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

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.

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!
