HEPA's Centennial Celebrations did not end
with the conclusion of the historic Centennial
Supreme Convention in July. In fact, celebrations
continued in earnest over the fall. They
spanned from sea to shining sea and across
the Atlantic to Athens.
Los Angeles
AHEPA's Western Region hosted a Centennial Celebration where
the Order honored California Lt. Governor Eleni Kounalakis with
the AHEPA Socrates Award, and the Very Reverend John S. Bakas,
dean of St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral, with the AHEPA
Archbishop Iakovos Humanitarian Award. Approximately 200
people attended the event, which was held at the Cathedral in
Los Angeles, September 17, 2022.
Event sponsor and Ahepan George Marcus introduced Lt.
Governor Kounalakis, who is the first woman elected Lt. Governor
of California and the first Greek American woman to serve as U.S.
Ambassador.
In acceptance of AHEPA's highest honor, Kounalakis spoke
about the impact of the AHEPA family on society, and her father,
Angelo Tsakopoulos' lifelong participation in AHEPA. She also
spoke with pride about her Daughters of Penelope membership
and her public service as California's lieutenant governor and as
a former American ambassador to Hungary.
Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas introduced Very Rev.
Bakas, who is retiring.
In acceptance remarks, Father Bakas recalled the contributions
of Ahepans to Hellenic causes who worshiped at the
Cathedral, including the late Spyros Skouras, who contributed
greatly during the Greek War Relief effort.
In addition to Supreme President Kokotas and Daughters of
Left: V. Rev. Bakas proudly displays his award flanked by Supreme
