Support Good Journalism!

• Click here to DONATE NOW!

Throughout her life in Arizona, up until her unexpected passing Aug. 28, 2015, Jan Harelson cared deeply about the University of Arizona School of Journalism.

Her late husband, Hugh Harelson, graduated from the program and dedicated his life to journalism at the Arizona Republic, Arizona Highways, and other venues. Jan, a teacher who valued education, created a computer lab endowment and an operations endowment for the school. She funded an annual teaching award and also served as our advisory council chair for years.

We will miss her dearly.

But Jan’s legacy lives on thanks to the endowment she created for the school, which provides students incredible opportunities to learn journalism. Matt and Julie Harelson, her son and daughter-in-law, have committed to matching contributions toward the endowment 1-to-1. We hope you will consider contributing to the cause to secure a future for excellent journalism in Arizona forever.
