A Deserved Award

My colleague and collaborator Bernard (Buddy) Stein was given a well-deserved award last night from the Bronx River Alliance for his work on the Hunts Point Express, a monthly community newspaper that covers Hunts Point and other neighborhoods in Community Board 2. With his students at Hunter College and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, Buddy and his community editor Joe Hirsch, a former student, put out the Express and the Mott Haven Herald which debuted last spring in Community Board 1.

In his acceptance speech, Buddy pointed out that the "duty of a great public university [like CUNY] is to serve [the communities of the city]." Buddy has done a tremendous job of helping CUNY fulfilling that responsibility.

We're proud to be partners with Buddy in, as he mentioned last night, a remarkable endeavor involving a total of 5 nonprofit community newspapers in the Bronx.

The award ceremony was part of a fundraiser for the Bronx River Alliance held at the gorgeous Hunts Point Riverside Park.

Congratulations to Buddy and all of his students who make the Express and the Herald possible.
