Mr. Christopher has many fond memories of the Club--in particular the good friends he made and the great fun he had playing basketball. Many alumni may remember him as the 1948 Boys Club National Pull-Up Champion. Some may also recall the first and last time he was ever in the Club’s boxing ring—hopefully he’ll recount the full story to us all shortly! He credits the training he received from the Club for helping him achieve the distinguished Meritorious Service Award from the U.S. Army in 1956.
Following his stint in the military, Mr. Christopher attended Boston University and in only six years he received both a business degree and a law degree. During his time at the university, he was awarded membership to Beta Gamma Sigma and was the Editor of the Law Review. A business leader and successful lawyer, Mr. Christopher is a founding partner of the Christopher, Hays, Wojcik & Mavricos law firm.
Mr. Christopher’s strong business leadership and legal skills are examples of what hard work, commitment, and the will to succeed can accomplish. Because of his achievements in our community, we honor him tonight.
