Executive Director recognized as an influencer for Massachusetts Hispanic community
City Year alumnae and team sponsor organizations also recognized

(BOSTON, Mass.) – City Year Boston is proud to announce that Vice President and Executive Director Sandra Lopez Burke has been selected to the El Planeta Powermeter 100, an annual list of the 100 most influential people for the Hispanic community of Massachusetts. She is listed alongside some of the state's most distinguished leaders spanning politics, business, education, media, and nonprofits, including Mayor Walsh, Governor Baker, Boston Public Schools Superintendent Tommy Chang and other BPS leadership. The full list is available here.

She is joined by two City Year Boston alumnae: Alejandra St. Guillen ('96) who was a previous Comcast Leadership Award winner for her work with Oiste and is now with the Mayor's Office of New Bostonians, and Tam Emerson (’07, ’08, and ’10 Alumni Fellow), who was a previous Corps Member of the Year, part of the team that founded the London site, and is currently working with The Eli J. Segal Citizen Leadership Program. 

We're also thrilled to see several representatives from City Year Boston team sponsor organizations, including Wellington Management, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, Staples, and State Street Corporation, on the list. Their commitment to the Boston community runs deep and we're proud to have them investing in the success of our city, our AmeriCorps members, and our students.

The Powermeter 100 honorees will be honored at an event on Tuesday, May 10th, 6:30 - 9:30 pm at the Artists for Humanity's EpiCenter in South Boston. For more information and to purchase tickets to attend, visit the El Planeta website.
