The Alhambra Source is happy to work with seven summer interns from Alhambra High School, Mark Keppel High School and San Gabriel High School. These interns will work with Alhambra Source project director and USC professor Michael Parks to produce 4-5 high-quality stories on the people, businesses and culture of Alhambra. They’ll also be guided by journalism mentors on reporting, writing and editing. As young community members themselves, they bring a unique point-of-view to the Alhambra Source. Browse through their photos and bios and check back regularly for their work!
The summer internship program is being funded with a generous donation from Sara Miller McCune.
