Joined by family, friends, and supporters, Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci (R,C,I- South Huntington) and Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,C,I-East Northport) recently honored local boxing sensation Chris Algieri (current WBO Light Welterweight Champion) at The Paramount’s Founder’s Room in Huntington. Lupinacci and Raia presented Mr. Algieri with a New York State Assembly Proclamation, which is the highest honor the Assembly bestows.

Algieri, during his acceptance remarks, spoke about how he successfully balanced his athletic and academic interests, and hopes that his story will serve as a source of inspiration. Afterwards, Mr. Algieri availed himself to a room packed full of fans to take pictures and sign autographs.

“As a former school board member, and currently a college professor, I know how valuable role models can be for our children,” said Lupinacci. “I was delighted to hear Chris speak about the importance of education and how he plans to give back to society. The 10th Assembly District is very proud to have produced such an inspiring young renaissance man.”
