Burbank teacher wins prestigious Hinderstein Award

The Sacramento Educational Cable Consortium (SECC) honored Luther Burbank High School digital media instructor John Hull with the 2015 Allan Hinderstein Award at its Student Educational Video Award Night last week.

The Hinderstein Award was created in remembrance of a visionary educator who collaborated with the consortium to create a variety of innovative teaching and learning projects.

Hull was given the honor in recognition of his “passion for using video and multimedia as a learning tool to engage students.”

Hull supports students by teaching Burbank’s digital media and journalism classes and is also a local journalist who highlights student sports.

Over the last seven years, Hull’s students have submitted more than 140 entries to the SEVA contest.
