CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — On Thursday, May 24, about 250 friends and supporters of the Armenian Mirror-Spectator gathered at the Royal Sonesta Hotel to pay tribute to the newspaper on its 80th anniversary.

Receiving awards of excellence were NBC News’s Janet Shamlian and Politico’s Charles Mahtesian. Gregory Adamian, the chancellor and president emeritus of Bentley University, received a lifetime achievement award. The event merited a write-up in the Boston Globe the following day. A detailed story, pho- tographs and a list of donations will appear in next week’s issue.
