One final push. We are almost there to $25,000.

Thanks to everyone who has given. We need to make one last push to make it a permanent endowment in honor of Bill Pearl, publisher of We are less than $5000 from hitting $25,000.

This is an important scholarship as it encourages journalism students at CSULB to pursue community journalism -- the kind of journalism Bill Pearl has been doing and that we so desperately need in today's political world.

So please. Reach into your pockets and pull out that extra bit of money and link here and donate today.

Bill thanks you. CSULB Long Beach will thank you.
