During his speech, Paolantonio encouraged students to make and keep promises as they pursue careers. After a question-and-answer session, students were asked to write down their promises and then share them with the group.
Held under the auspices of the Frank J. Guarini/NIAF Media Forum, the event was one of many that bring together members of the media, NIAF supporters, business leaders and students to discuss their Italian heritage.
A participating media panel also included CBS 's Jon Hitchcock and Pat Ciarrocchi, Fox's Sue Serio and Philadelphia Inquirier Joe DiStefano. Special guests included Villanova University's head coach Andy Talley and former NFL player Vince Papale.
