BU Who Knew?

Sal Tinajero recruitment

SAL TINAJERO ’94 and his wife JENNIFER SNOW TINAJERO ’95 hosted Sal’s forensics students and their parents at their home in November. The group heard about opportunities at Bradley from Dr. Jeff Huberman, dean of the Slane College of Communications and Fine Arts. The Tinajero family has hosted a growing number of parents and prospective Bradley students for the past eight years at their home in Santa Ana, Calif. “Now, we have our own young alums who return to our home to encourage our high school students to become part of the Bradley family,” says Sal. “It opens doors for networking with each other and for recruiting. Last year we held a Bradley alumni event at Angels Stadium and invited high school recruits so they could feel what's it like to be part of the family.”
