WESTWOOD—Warner Bros. Entertainment has announced high school seniors Alexi Fiumani, Karl Ravancho, Isabel De Honor, Richard Kent, and Samuel Park as the 2013 Reach Honorship recipients on Friday, June 28.


Every year, Warner Bros awards six graduating high school seniors who are passionate about the entertainment industry. The awards include scholarships, as well as the opportunity to complete four summer internships at Warner Bros. The recipients can begin their internship in the summer immediately following their high school graduation. Each summer, the recipients are paired with executive mentors and provided with unique networking opportunities with professionals from the entertainment industry. Successful scholars are also eligible for full-time positions at the company after completing their respective degrees.


“The Reach program allows us to identify up-and-coming talent in our local community,” said Michael Walbrecht, Vice President of Public Affairs at Warner Bros.

Fiumani is going to be attending San Diego State University in Fall 2013, and is planning to study marketing.

Both scholars will receive a $10,000 scholarship to attend college, as well as the opportunity to complete four consecutive paid summer internships at the Warner Bros. Studio while still in school.


Isabel De Honor, Richard Kent and Samuel Park received the Los Angeles Country Reach Honorships. All three will also be given the same financial scholarship to attend college as well as the same opportunity to complete internships for four years throughout their summers while in college.
