HSA President Fr Kosmas Karavellas honored with Patriot Award
HSA President Father Kosmas Karavellas was honored with the Spiro Spiromilios Patriot Award at the occasion of the "Together We Can Make Himara Great" Symposium on February 20, 2016.
Father Karavellas received the award in recognition for his ceaseless efforts on behalf of the Himarrioton Society of America and for Himara and her people. He has been instrumental in making HSA a strong voice in the defence of human rights and progress for all Himarriotans, raising the issues of Himara with the United States government, and continues to lead the Society's advocacy and charitable efforts.
Father Kosmas is the first recipient of the Patriot award, which was presented by fellow members of HSA's Board of Directors in conjunction with the Symposium dinner/dance on Saturday evening.
