The road just got a little straighter for kids in an organization called the Santa Barbara School of Squash (SBSOS) that offers committed kids, from homes of modest means, an opportunity to steer onto a path that leads to college, to be a “first” in their family. Now, helping to straighten that path comes:
Rebecca Walsh, new Programs Director of SBSOS and 2010 graduate of Westmont College. She was hired in February and not only brings her enthusiasm and organizational skills but vast experience working with children and youth in under-served areas, as near as Redding & Orange County and far away as Costa Rica & the Philippines, and she a lifeguard. Her BA degree in Sociology and Spanish will serve her well as will her experience as a behavior therapist, and curriculum developer.
Sue Green, new Academic Director of SBSOS and 1992 graduate of UCSB who received her teaching credentials at Northridge. She was hired in June and brings 15 years of teaching experience which, when combined with her expertise in technology and curriculum development, will insure students receive cutting-edge guidance. She has mentored elementary grades as well as student teachers in Google Apps and continues to stay active hiking, paddle boarding and continues to teach yoga to adults & kids for fun and fitness.
Youth need a “boost” and since 2006, Santa Barbara School of Squash, which is a member of the National Urban Squash and Education Association, is in our community to provide it. Starting at 5th grade and through high school, SBSOS gives individual attention to each youth in the program.
