Alberto Vasallo II

Ceremony Host - From 1981 to present day Alberto Vasallo, has worked for El Mundo Newspaper, the largest Latino newspaper in New England. In 2012, El Mundo Newspaper celebrated its 40th anniversary with a historic, first-of-its-kind celebration at America's Most Beloved Ballpark - Fenway Park. From 1992 to 2001, Alberto hosted and co-produced one of Spanish radio’s most popular drive time radio shows, ushering in the talk radio format for Spanish radio.

In 1995, Alberto partnered with the Boston Red Sox in promoting and implementing the Latino Youth Recognition days at Fenway Park. The event includes a pre-game ceremony with Red Sox Latino players honoring top Latino academic achievers from the area's public middle schools.

Michael A. Curry, Esq. - President, Boston Chapter of the NAACP

Keynote Speaker - Michael was first elected in 2010 to the National Board of Directors and is the first representative from the Boston Branch and the New England Area in over 35 years. His election is expected to translate into a revived NAACP presence in New England, as well as a northeast voice at the table dealing with critical issues regarding education, economic development, public safety, health disparities and civic engagement. During his tenure, more than 2,500 new members have joined the branch and a younger generation of leaders has become active in the organization. He successfully executed a strategy to strengthen the influence and voice of the NAACP in the Greater Boston area by rebuilding partnerships and re-engaging city officials.


All Male Acappella Group - Founded in 1949, he MIT Logarhythms is MIT's oldest and only all-male acapella singing group. Comprised entirely of MIT undergraduates. The "Logs" are known throughout the Boston area for a combining crisp choreography, rousing stage presence, and innovative musicality to create a fun and exciting show for every audience. While the Logarhythms perform for the most part in the Northeast, they are by no means relegated to it, touring twice a year to destinations such as London, Chicago, and San Francisco. As the Logs enter their 65th year, they thank all the alumni for their work bringing the group so far, and look forward to many years of singing to come!
