Student Spotlight: Meet our Students of the Month!

Each month, our four student-led businesses vote on a member of their team who has gone above and beyond their responsibilities to be the Student of the Month!

Students get a certificate of honor and are awarded two tickets to the concert of their choice at the Santa Barbara Bowl. We also hang up a Student of the Month announcement in the shop for the rest of the month. Included in the announcement is a short interview conducted by the student leader to help others get to know those being honored!

Here are this month’s Students of the Month and some excerpts from the interviews:
