a letter from Alumni Association President, Jack Wimberly
To my fellow Brooks Alumni,
We the Alumni are the Brooks Legacy. For nearly 2 years, a key group of alumni, including Ernie Brooks, as well as former Brooks faculty, carefully crafted an intentional and masterful plan to create a bright, promising future for current and future Brooks Alumni. The formation of The Ernest Brooks Foundation, along with the announcement of Brooks at UCSB, are key moments for the Brooks Legacy, with a future rooted in trust, inspiration and excellence.
from a solid partnership between the Alumni Association and the Foundation.
from Ernie himself, who elevates and motivates us to work intentionally and passionately to accomplish this shared mission.
in our common goal: to elevate those who shape our understanding of the world through the creation of visual media.
I am proud to be a Brooks alum, honored to serve with my fellow Association Board Members Brooke Hansen, Jensen Sutta, Marvin Nauman and Setareh Vatan, and especially Alumni Association immediate past-President Matt Harbicht.
We are humbled to work with Ernie and the Foundation's Board of Directors, and proud to count you in the next chapter of the Brooks Legacy.
I encourage you to learn more about The Ernest Brooks Foundation on this Web site, including ways to support and get engaged with the foundation.
President, Alumni Association of Brooks Institute &
Advisory Board Member, The Ernest Brooks Foundation
