Huntington Station, NY - July 13, 2018 - Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci attended the Opening Word Ceremony at St. Hugh of Lincoln Church in Huntington Station on Thursday, June 7.
"The Opening Word Program time-and-time-again proves to be an invaluable community program which helps immigrant women to learn English and increase their professional trajectory," said Supervisor Lupinacci. "Each year, I join this incredible program to recognize the women, our new citizens, and the volunteer teachers who are so selfless in their assistance. This program shows the good that can be done when a community welcomes diversity of culture, language, and heritage, and in turn provides a forum for all to gather and learn together."
