The annual award is bestowed upon a Suffolk University graduate who demonstrates exceptional promise in his or her profession. It is named in memory of Lou Connelly, the former longtime director of public affairs and sports information at Suffolk.
“I am honored to receive this wonderful award and be mentioned alongside the great Lou Connelly,” said D’Archangelo, who was recognized at a reception and awards ceremony held recently at the Holiday Inn Boston at Beacon Hill. “Lou meant so much to me and it feels good to know that others recognize our sincerity and dedication to public affairs and the field of communication and journalism.”

“As the recipient of the Communication and Journalism Young Alumnus Award, David D’Arcangelo exemplifies the spirit of Lou Connelly, for whom the honor is named,” said Robert Rosenthal, chairman of the Communication and Journalism Department at Suffolk University. “He has consistently given back to society and to the university through his volunteer work, and has mentored a number of Suffolk students, providing guidance and sage advice.”
