R

obert Badavas, CEO/president, PlumChoice
Enterprises, chose the words quoted above
to describe AHEPA in his acceptance speech
upon receiving the 2015 Academy of
Achievement in Business Award at the 2015 Regional
Biennial Banquet, Nov. 5, 2015, Metropolitan Center,
Brookline, Mass. He did so in the context of AHEPA's
August denouncement of Pennsylvania judge's antiGreek tirade, which also called for the judge's ouster.
Badavas added, "As an American Hellene, I am
proud AHEPA continues to be our voice...AHEPA is the
organization that brings out our 'inner voice,' it is the
organization that speaks for us, the organization that
stands for our ideals and firmly against extremism,
intolerance, hate, bigotry and discrimination. AHEPA
is purposeful, it is committed. Its vigilance is needed
more today than quite possibly at any time in the organization's history."
Also receiving honors were: His Eminence
Metropolitan Methodios, who received the 2015
AHEPA Archbishop Iakovos Humanitarian Award. In
acceptance, His Eminence conveyed how AHEPA is an
ally in the fight to protect religious freedom domestically and abroad.
Also honored but unable to attend were:
the Honorable Marty Walsh, mayor of Boston;
and the Honorable Charlie Baker, governor of the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Supreme President John W. Galanis delivered the
Keynote Address. He commended all the honorees and
presented his vision for AHEPA. The supreme president
also received generous contributions to the AHEPASaint Nicholas National Shrine Capital Campaign Drive
from Rose of New England Chapter 110, Norwich,
