Village Properties Realtor Kelly Knight Named to Scholarship Foundation Board of Directors

Santa Barbara, CA — Kelly Knight, a former attorney who is now a successful Realtor with Village Properties, has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.

A native of Maine, Knight earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, before attending McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific in Sacramento. In 1988 she joined the Santa Barbara-based firm Hatch & Parent (now part of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck), where she specialized in real estate and business litigation. Shifting gears, Knight obtained her real estate broker license in 2005 and has been affiliated with Village Properties ever since.

Knight currently serves as a trustee of Santa Barbara Middle School, where she oversaw the launch of a pilot scholarship program. She also supports the Teacher’s Fund, a local education nonprofit. In addition, Knight is a board member for the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County and she serves on the Development and Governance committees of the Scholarship Foundation Board. She is a former Santa Barbara Symphony board member.

“Kelly brings a wealth of unique skills and experience to the Foundation Board and is passionate about helping local students get to and complete college. She has a reputation for getting things done, and I very much look forward to working with her,” said Scholarship Foundation President and CEO Candace Winkler.

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara is the nation’s largest community-based provider of college scholarships, having cumulatively awarded in excess of $100 million to more than 47,000 county students since its founding in 1962. A nonprofit organization, the Scholarship Foundation also provides free financial aid advising services. For additional information, visit
