Betsy Bowman '95 is vice principal of student life at Cristo Rey High School in Boston, MA. In the years after college, she volunteered in schools and orphanages in Honduras and Guatemala while studying Spanish. She spent 2009-2010 in Haiti, volunteering as a Spanish teacher at the Louverture Cleary School outside Port au Prince. Five months after her arrival, the earthquake shattered Port au Prince.
