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.

The Alhambra Source is happy to announce the Edward S. Harris Fellowship, given by Alhambra Source Advisory Board Member Sara Harris in honor of her late father.

This purpose of the fellowship is to support a youth reporter in pursuing a professional education in community media, while also attending high school or college. The recipient of this fellowship is Bastian Mendez, one of our summer interns, who produced excellent stories on Potts art gallery and the Mosaic Lizard Theater podcast while with us this summer. Mendez, who is also a talented photographer, is interested in covering local arts and culture and how it influences L.A.’s artists. He’s a graduate of San Gabriel high school and is a freshman at Cal State LA.

Edward S. Harris was born to Russian-Jewish immigrants in Depression-era Chicago. He was the first and only member of his immediate, immigrant family to attend college, completing an M.B.A. at DePaul University and a J.D. at The University of Chicago while working nearly full-time in post-WWII Chicago. He worked in his father’s business, Leo’s Dancewear, from the age of 10 and retired as Chief Financial Officer at 78. As a lawyer, he was committed to fair contracts and labor practices, as well as immigrant rights.

“My father valued leadership, hard work, and equality, with a belief that everyone has the right to a solid education and the opportunity to pursue the knowledge they desire to seek,” Harris said. It is in that spirit that we welcome Bastian back to benefit from the Edward S. Harris Memorial Fellowship!
