Coming Home

Harvard University Dining Services staff member Hector A. Santizo embraces his co-workers during his first visit back to campus since fracturing his leg while traveling to work in early February. Santizo, 64, has worked at Harvard in Adams House for 25 years. “I was so shocked when they told me,” said Teodora Lara, far right, smiling at Santizo. “Because, you know, we appreciate him a lot.
