Hellenic American Union receives commendation by the Academy of Athens


The Hellenic American Union has been honored by the Academy of Athens for its long years of exceptional service to education and culture in Greece. The award was made at the Academy’s gala annual awards ceremony held at the Academy of Athens Megaron on Friday, December 28th, 2012. Each year the Academy of Athens honors persons and institutions for their contributions to the intellectual, scientific and cultural life of the country. Forty awards in total were made in 2012 in the fields of the Sciences, Arts & Letters, Ethics and Political Science, and Literature.

Hellenic American Union President Chris Spirou accepted the award from Academy President Georgios Kontopoulos on behalf of the members of the Association and its Board of Directors, former Executive President Leonidas Phoebus Koskos, and staff and faculty of the institution. President Spirou noted that the Academy’s recognition of the Hellenic American Union’s contribution to Greek society did credit to all those who have served as its members, management and staff. “The Hellenic American Union is not its name or its shield but instead the people who have worked as its staff or as volunteers to advance the educational and cultural mission of the Association with diligence, effectiveness and dedication for these last 55 years.”
