By CARMEN AGUILA-TORNERO

Partners in Education welcomed Santa Barbara City College President Anthony E. Beebe as its new board president, County Superintendent of Schools Susan Salcido as board secretary, and Terrain Consulting Principal Brian Robinson as the Computers for Families Committee chair.

Formed in 1977 by local businesses and education leaders, Partners in Education helps meet the needs of K through 12 schools and youth programs that help students get ready for life after school. Volunteers with the organization include professionals from local businesses who participate in guest speaking, career days, mock job interviews, and tutoring for local schools.

Partners in Education is administered by the Santa Barbara County Education Office,and its volunteers have served more than 200,000 hours at county schools, according to a press release from the Santa Barbara County Education Office.

"Partners in Education's mission to connect businesses and community members with ways to support education is personal for me," new board President Beebe said in the release. "As someone whose own career path wasn't always clear, I especially appreciate the ways Partners creates opportunities to expose students to a wide variety of both higher education and career options."
