San Marcos High to Celebrate 50 Years

Party planners are calling all Royals for next year's golden anniversary.

San Marcos High School  alumni and supporters are planning a gala event to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary in 2008. Anyone interested in helping to plan the event, or who would like to be on the mailing list for invitations and updates should contact Cara Gamberdella (Class of 1990) at 
[email protected]  or 805.683.7336.

"I am committed to giving back as a proud alumna and community supporter," said Gamberdella, a former SMHS English and journalism teacher. "San Marcos has been a very important part of my life and my family’s life here in Santa Barbara."

The committee is headed by assistant principal Ed Behrens and includes Joan Cotich, Diane Dodwell, Holly Eubank, Sadie Hall, Susan Kipp, Shawn Ricci, Helen Murdoch, Aaron Solis and Debbie Keys Thomas.

The date of the celebration — which will be an evening of dinner, dancing, entertainment and Royals’ nostalgia and will be open to all former students, staff and community supporters — is not yet determined, but the party is slated for February or March.

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!
