Tuesday, December 6, 2011 (Bronx, NY)- On Thursday, November 17, 2011 a group of Hostos friends, staff and alumni attended the Hostos Night at Pregones Theater to enjoy the theater’s latest theatrical production of Fly-Babies/Piojos.

Pregones Theater, the Bronx’s premiere theater company, has been a long-time collaborator of Hostos. Each year, Nydia R. Edgecombe, Director of Alumni Relations, coordinates an outing to Pregones in order to foster and strengthen the mutually beneficial cultural relationship and also to cultivate donors for the Circle of 100 Scholarship and Emergency Fund.

Hostos Alumnus (00’), Eduardo Sanchez attended Fly-Babies/ Piojos with a group of coworkers from the Human Resources Administration Office in the Bronx.  "I love Pregones Theater and the work they do in the community.  Immediately after getting the flyer I committed to bring ten people with me to support the Alumni Relations Office and Pregones Theater as well," indicated Mr. Sanchez.

In her welcoming remarks, Rosalba Rolón thanked Hostos for its continued support.
Also in attendance from Hostos were Yvette Hernández-Luyando, Executive Administrator of Enrollment; Linda Wallace, Director of Counseling; Maria Grieco, Director of College Discovery; and alumni Saudy Tejada (2002’), Margarita Minino (76’), and Nemesis Diaz (11’).
