Thirty locals took time out of their Saturdays to learn and discuss journalism with the Alhambra Source. Mentors Rick Wilkinson (Nightline), Elaine Woo (Los Angeles Times), Jon Thurber (also of the LA Times) and Alan Mittelstaedt (USC, Neon Tommy) lent their expertise on video reporting, news writing, opinion writing and photography at the beautiful Ramona Convent Secondary School.

  1. What a nice turnout for the event! Really glad that the Alhambra Source is holding these workshops. I can’t wait for some of the stories that will be written and published on the Alhambra Source by those who participated.
