Nola Stucky of NS Ceramic

Nola is widely known as an expert on tile. Her showroom on Ortega Street features an extensive selection of the finest tile and ceramic designs one could ever imagine. Nola was very familiar with the historic landmark tile on the campus of Santa Barbara Junior High School. When she was contacted to help our organization design the tile for the new Bryan Family Foyer, she jumped onboard without hesitation.

Nola has been instrumental in guiding the tile design for the Marjorie Luke Theatre, insuring that the facility will appropriately reflect the Spanish Colonial Revival design of the campus. She has carefully guided and consulted on the tile, color and setting designs for the new foyer and our award-winning kiosk located on Cota Street in front of the theatre.

We are most fortunate to have Nola on our team of designers and donors. She and NS CERAMIC have generously contributed all of custom tile for the theatre renovation. Her support is a classic example of exemplary local individuals and businesses committed to seeing this project successfully completed with the highest quality of materials and maintaining architectural heritage of the building.

Gigi Ronchietto of Ronchietto – a fine antique re-creation company – joined our team when Project Director Rod Lathim gave him a tour of the design and art boards of the Marjorie Luke Theatre. His beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival furniture collection is inspired by 16th and 17th-century European craftmanship. His impressive, authentic designs are perfectly suited for the Bryan Family Foyer. He has contributed four pieces of custom-made, handcrafted wood furniture for the Bryan Family Foyer and our lecturn. The finishing touches of this amazing furniture with the custom tile from NS Ceramic makes the Bryan Family Foyer a grand showplace.

Montecito Bank & Trust

We believe that all banking should be personal. After all, the financial services you’re offered – and the choices you make – affect your future, your family, your livelihood and, of course, your daily life.
That’s why every associate at Montecito Bank & Trust is personally committed to our clients. To listen carefully and collaborate closely. To develop long-term relationships and earn trust. And especially to personalize solutions – instead of providing preset products – that meet both your current needs and future goals.
This distinctly different approach to banking has been in our DNA since the very beginning. Grounded in the belief that a local bank could provide both the highest level of personalized financial services and a major commitment to the community, a group of local business leaders founded the Bank of Montecito in 1975.
We were locally owned and managed then, and we still are today: the Bank of Montecito is now Montecito Bank & Trust, an eight branch community bank serving personal and business financial needs in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, and has in-depth commercial lending capabilities and a highly respected Wealth Management division.
We were committed to community then, and we still are today. Through programs like Community Dividends® and Anniversary GrantsSM and the volunteer efforts of our associates, we continue to support the communities that support our success. It’s all part of a long-standing, deeply held pledge to provide personal service in every sense of the word.
