DiPietro Honors Local Gold Medalists

Assemblyman David DiPietro (R,C –East Aurora) today honored East Aurora native Kaitlin Hawayek and her figure skating partner, Jean-Luc Baker, on their recent gold medal win at the World Junior Figure Skating Championship in Sofia, Belgium.

“You’re always proud when your neighbors and your friends accomplish great things,” DiPietro said. “Kaitlin and Jean-Luc made this country proud with their performance and brought home the gold. Their hard work and determination should be held up as inspiration for young people all across the country. Kaitlin’s parents, Kristin and Jon, have been there every step of the way through her journey, and they deserve praise for their loving dedication to their daughter. I am proud to have hosted them at the Capitol today.”
