The 18th Annual HOPE Awards will gather again this month to celebrate champions of education across the Santa Barbara community. This year’s awards will take place on Thursday, April 20 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum (136 E. De La Guerra St.). The Santa Barbara Education Foundation (SBEF) will honor educators themselves, elected officials and community members.  This year, Ed Heron will be honored with the 2017 HOPE Award. Heron has been a denizen of Santa Barbara since 1948 and has dedicated himself to building partnerships between schools, businesses and the Santa Barbara community. SBEF honors him on the occasion of his retirement which ends his eight years of service on the Santa Barbara Unified School District of Education.
