SBHS Alumni Association to Give 32 Senior Scholarships

Geology researcher Harry Cook, class of 1953, is the Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.

The Santa Barbara High School Alumni Association will award 32 $1,000 scholarships to SBHS seniors on May 17 at the annual barbecue at Lower Manning Park.

The Alumni Association was founded in 1975 to celebrate the centennial year of “The High School.”  That year, two $100 scholarships were awarded. Since then, alumni from around the globe donate annually to help fellow Dons continue their education in college.

This year’s Distinguished Alumni Award will be awarded to Harry Cook of the class of 1953, whose adventures have earned him an Indiana Jones reputation. Cook is an alumnus of UC Santa Barbara and UC Berkeley, where he earned his Ph.D. in geology. His geology research and expeditions have led him around the world. His focus is on developing petroleum and gold exploration models. One of his models was utilized in Kazakhstan to find the world’s third-largest oil field. Cook has lectured for 35 years and has written more than 150 publications and books.

Social hour will be at noon, lunch at 1 p.m. with the award ceremony to follow. Tickets may be purchased by calling 805.966.9101 or 805.687.9957.

Gloria Cavallero is a Santa Barbara High School Alumni Association board member.

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!
