Doris Adams Memorial Scholarships

In memory of our mother, Doris C. Adams (1921-2018), who taught art at Burbank High School from 1965 to 1977 (during which she had a hand in molding the artistic talent of Tim Burton, now a noted artist and filmmaker), and who was herself an accomplished artist, 28647126_15220245730_r.jpegwe are seeking to establish a scholarship fund for promising art students as they graduate from Burbank High School to help defray their college or art school expenses.  Our goal is to raise at least $15,000, from which $1,000 scholarships would be awarded to promising art students selected by a consensus of current art teachers at Burbank High School.

This scholarship fund would not only honor the memory of our mother, but also, by nurturing artistic expression, help in providing a needed antidote to the unfortunate coarsening of society.  We are grateful for whatever you can contribute.

                                                                  Yours truly,


                                                                  Michael and Stephen Adams
