  1. I lived in Boston for four years, during which time I worked at Bunker Hill Community College. There was a very nice Hispanic gentleman who was on the board. I don’t recall his name, however, and I’m not sure if he is still on the board. I no longer llive in Boston, and am trying to contact him. I only need his name and then I would do the rest. He had been in the newspaper business and was the former publisher either of El Planeta or El Mundo. Muchas gracias.
