- SHPE Jr. Chapter – Noche de Ciencias Softball Fundraiser
- Raytheon Hispanic Organization for Leadership Advancement (HOLA) Annual Golf Tournament
- GE Hispanic Forum Soccer Tournament for STEM Scholarships

We thank these organizations and those who attended for helping our student population with funds for STEM programs and scholarships!
SHPE Boston received a Certificate of Appreciation from Boston Scientific for support of Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives. Thanks Boston Scientific for your commitment of diversity in the workplace!
SHPE Boston member Erick Aponte was the subject of a PR News Wire article “From Student to Mentor”. While in high school in Lawrence, MA, Erick Aponte was in a program where Raytheon mentors introduced students to careers in math and science. Aponte is now an engineer working at Raytheon and with plans to come full circle by becoming a “Stand and Deliver” mentor himself. Congratulations Erick, you are a role model for our young community!
