It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like …

First published in the Dec. 2 print issue of the San Marino Tribune.
In typical Southern California fashion, volunteers were far more concerned about sunburn than frostbite while transforming the bus shelter at the intersection of San Marino Avenue and Huntington Drive into the Little Christmas House, a tradition that has lasted for more than a quarter century. Members of the San Marino Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club of San Marino who added holiday flair to the community on Monday included John Garcia, Tony Galaviz, Sandy Troup, Gilda Moshir, Vikram Basappa, C. Joseph Chang and Dennis Kneier.

Now in his 25th year at The Tribune, Mitch Lehman is Editor and Sports Editor in addition to being the public address announcer for ten sports programs at San Marino High School. Mitch is one of only a handful in the community to receive the ‘Very Special Person Award’ from the San Marino PTA at the annual Founder’s Day ceremony, was acknowledged as a 'Terrific Titan' by the San Marino High School PTSA, was named an Honorary Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Club of San Marino and received a National Honorary Merit Badge in Journalism from the Boy Scouts of America. He has received two independent Pulitzer Prize nominations and in the past three years, Mitch has won seven awards and is a thirteen-time finalist in the California News Publishers Association's Better Newspapers Contest. In 2015, the press box at Titan Stadium was re-named 'Lehman's Loft' in his honor. You can reach Mitch at mitchlehman@sanmarinotribune.com.
