Institute’s Mission Hill Liaison Receives Hispanic Heritage Award
December 7, 2018
A local woman who for years has been a catalyst for neighborhood enrichment programs has received the Boston City Council’s Hispanic Heritage Award for 2018.
Johanna Sena, community relations liaison at Wentworth Institute of Technology, was honored for her leadership in Mission Hill. She has worked in the neighborhood for many years; before joining the university in 2009, she was a community liaison for former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and former Boston City Councilor Mike Ross.
District 8 City Councilor Josh Zakim cited Sena’s service in Mission Hill and role as an important bridge between the city, his staff and the local community. Zakim represents Mission Hill and Wentworth as part of the 8th District.
Wentworth consistently shows what it means to be a good institutional neighbor, said Zakim, and Sena deserves credit for helping to make that happen.
