Thank you to the 2018-2019 Board of Directors for all of your work in making this past year worthy of celebration. Congratulations to all of our awardees and scholarship recipients. You have left us inspired, motivated and energized. We are ready to continue the work, to use our power and privilege to make the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and indeed the world a better place. Finally thank you to all of our sponsors who supported us last night, without whom we would not be able to carry on our mission!
