Sylvia Kautz was a longtime educator at Mountain View School with a special talent for helping student feel included. She passed away in June, and the Mountain View community chose to start a Social Justice book collection at their school and also purchased books for the other Goleta schools. The 4 titles they gave to Foothill in Sylvia's memory are ready to check out.
