I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra Educational Foundation to honor local leaders

The Alhambra Educational Foundation announced Monday the winners of its 10th annual Service to Education Awards, which honor community leaders in education. The nonprofit organization and official fundraising partner of the Alhambra Unified School District will present the awards March 29 at a dinner and gala at the Hilton Los Angeles/San Gabriel.

The AEF board of directors selects teachers, school administrators, volunteers, community organizations, local businesses, and city officials who have supported AUSD and the community. AEF will honor this year four AUSD elementary school band and orchestra teachers — Dave Batti, Lisa Jones, Jim Hamilton and Julie Sorenson — for their “dedication to instructing and inspiring the love of music,” according to AEF. Other honorees include education organization Alhambra Council of PTAs, parent and school volunteer Keith Matsuda, and longtime AUSD architect and school supporter Mun Liu of ML Architecture, Inc.

The Hilton Los Angeles/San Gabriel is the major sponsor for the 2014 Service to Education Awards Dinner and Gala. The hotel on Valley Boulevard donated $10,000 to the foundation to benefit local schools. “As a local business, we understand the importance of partnering with and supporting our local public schools, and giving back to our community," said Hilton Los Angeles/San Gabriel General Manager Carl Bolte in a press release.

Tickets to the dinner and gala, which cost $60 each, will go on sale on the AEF website in early February. All proceeds will benefit AEF and its “Music & More” campaign, a fundraising drive to provide educational and enrichment programs at all AUSD schools, including music instruction for K-3 students as well as college and career counselors at AUSD high schools. The campaign has raised $25,000 so far.

“The Service to Education Awards Dinner and Gala has evolved over the years to become a community-wide celebration of our schools and community,” said AEF Executive Director Sheryl MacPhee. “We invite and encourage everyone — parents, community members, teachers, staff, alumni, etc. — to attend.“
