El Mundo Boston and the Boston Red Sox recognize academic all-stars from Boston Public Middle Schools
Boston – Eighteen academic all-stars from the Boston Public Schools were honored for their achievements in the classroom in a pre-game ceremony that included Sox players Deven Marrero, Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts On Monday, June 12th, moments before the Boston Red Sox took on the Philadelphia Phillies at Fenway Park.
For the past 22 season, El Mundo Boston has partnered with the Boston Red Sox in the Latino Youth Recognition Day Program (LYRD), which includes ceremonies before three Sox games per year. The idea is to honor top Latino middle school students from across the Commonwealth who have excelled in the classroom. The students are selected by their respective schools.
Over the past two decades, the public school systems from Lawrence, Lowell, Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Lynn, Malden, Everett, Springfield, Holyoke and Chicopee have participated.
Since it’s inception in 1995, more than 2,500 students have been honored and over 15,000 tickets have been donated to the community. Each student receives four tickets for friends and family.
This year’s partners are: Western Union, Comcast, Bank of America, TJX Companies, Stop& Shop and Massport.
