At the invitation of Mr. George Logothetis, 2017 Hellenic College Honorary Degree recipient, Rev. Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, HCHC President, and five HCHC students participated in the Concordia Europe Summit in Athens, Greece June 6-7. Expenses for the trip were covered in full by Concordia.
“I would like to thank Mr. Logothetis and Concordia for the opportunity to attend the Concordia Europe Summit,” said Rev. Fr. Christopher. “Attendance at the event is a tremendous opportunity for our students to learn the challenges of cross-sector collaboration in the dynamic European political landscape, more so as Greece continues to rebuild its economy.”
The Concordia Europe Summit provides a platform for the exchange of ideas and the brokering of new relationships across the public and private sectors by convening regional leadership to address these challenges and formulate practical solutions.
“As HCHC continues to examine and retool its curriculum for the 21st century, an understanding of global politics and economics, particularly with respect to the exit of Britain from the European Union, NATO expansion, and terrorism, will prove crucial toward an overall education that prepares students for global careers,” said Rev. Fr. Christopher. “HCHC values its relationship with the Libra Group and Concordia, and looks forward to its growth in the future.”
HCHC students attending the event with Rev. Fr. Christopher were Emanuel Sabau, Angelo Maginas, Elle Pappas, Nicholas B.A. Heide, and Stavroula Alexaki.
