Burbank residents named California Arts Scholars

Katherine Morin, 15, a ninth-grader studying theater arts at Marshall

Magnet School in Los Angeles, and Daniela Stitz, 17, an 11th-grader

studying visual arts at Oakwood High School in North Hollywood, were

awarded the Governor’s Arts Scholar medallions.


Katherine and Daniela are among 520 California high school

scholars statewide to be honored for their accomplishments in the

arts. The Burbank teenagers received their awards at a ceremony

Friday hosted by Paramount Pictures.


The Governor’s Award recognizes students who have been selected to

attend InnerSpark, the month-long California State Summer School for

the Arts program.

This summer InnerSpark will be from July 12 through Aug. 9 at the

California Institute of the Arts in Valencia.

The program, funded through a partnership between the public and

private sectors, was established 17 years ago by the state

legislature and signed into law by Gov. George Deukmejian.
