Amb. Pyatt greets then-Supreme President Horiates.
Frasure Memorial Award in recognition of his commitment to
peace and alleviation of human suffering in eastern Ukraine. He
considers former U.S. Ambassador to Greece R. Nicholas Burns,
a former under secretary of State, a mentor.
Coming from such a critical post in Ukraine, we knew
Washington was sending a special and seasoned envoy to Greece.
And Greece would benefit.
From the get-go at our initial September 2016 meeting in
Washington, D.C., Ambassador Pyatt has been a good and true
friend; not only to the AHEPA, but to all Hellenes across the globe.
During his five years of service in Greece, an abundance of
meaningful events transpired where AHEPA participated, and it
felt rewarding because we knew our ambassador cared. A few
examples that come to mind-
* When AHEPA restored a vandalized AHEPA Harry Truman
Statue, Ambassador Pyatt took note.
* When there was trouble in Alexandroupolis, and AHEPA
helped, the ambassador took note.
* When Ambassador Pyatt detailed AHEPA's extensive contribution
to the U.S.-Greece relationship at a conference on
cultural diplomacy and the contribution of the diaspora
in January 2021, he expressed his gratitude to AHEPA for
its efforts to provide COVID-19 relief, stating AHEPA was
one of the first organizations to reach out. He singled-out
AHEPA Hospital as providing a " lifeline " for the residents of
" The Greek diaspora and especially grassroots organizations
like AHEPA help to put our democratic principles into practice,
forming a vital bridge between the peoples of our two countries, "
Pyatt said. " You are one of the secret ingredients of our bilateral
relationship, helping to advance our great work. "
For all of AHEPA's contributions to the U.S.-Greece relationship,
Pyatt paid a significant compliment to AHEPA at the
Amb. Pyatt with the delegation of the 2020 Leadership Mission of American
Hellenic and American Jewish organizations.
