Gov. Pete Wilson and other legislators will congratulate 15 Ventura County students tonight for being accepted into the California State Summer School for the Arts program.
The four-week program, which drew more than 1,300 applicants this year, was created in 1987 by the state Legislature to encourage junior high and high school students to pursue careers in arts or entertainment. It is held at California Institute for the Arts in Valencia.
Wilson is scheduled to give each student a medallion at the 7 p.m. event at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, 40 Presidential Drive, near Simi Valley.
For information, call the Ventura County Arts Council at 498-7214.
The accepted students are: Amy Rogers of Fillmore; Lisa Dokken of Newbury Park; Erin Johnson and Crystal Sanchez of Oxnard; Gabriel Davis of Santa Paula; Douglas Lemore, Thomas Saxe, Eric Schrecongost, Margaret Ennis, Christopher Woodhead and Chandra Tapie of Simi Valley; Meryl O'Conner and Cindy Soohoo of Thousand Oaks; and Natascha Crouch and Amber Bassett of Ventura.
