LOS ANGELES (AP) — Entertainer Carol Burnett is being honored by her alma mater.

Hollywood High School’s Performing Arts Center announced Tuesday that it is naming an annual award after Miss Burnett and that the 79-year-old entertainer will be its first recipient.

She will receive the Carol Burnett Honor of Distinction Award on Jan. 10 at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard, just around the corner from the high school, from which she graduated from in 1951.

Other famous alumni of the Sunset Boulevard campus include Judy Garland, Rudolph Valentino, Cher, Laurence Fishburne, John Ritter and Mickey Rooney.
