With great pride, GEF congratulates Lisa Rivas, recipient of the 2017 Goleta’s Finest Volunteer of the Year award. As president of GEF, Lisa’s tireless efforts, vision, and transformational energy have guided this organization to greater success than ever. Lisa does more than lead GEF. In her service to the community, she serves on board of directors of the Scholarship Foundation, Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara Middle School. She also dedicates time to El Camino Elementary School where her youngest son is a 6th grader. We thank the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce for recognizing Lisa’s commitment to the community and for bestowing this impressive award on a member of GEF!
