Two nationally prominent educational organizations jointly held a dinner banquet today, June 4, 2006, in New York. Meeting at the Chian Federation Headquarters in Astoria, the yearly event was dedicated to veteran teachers "who have worked for many years perpetuating the unforgettable ideals and democratic values of the Greek language and culture" and to other distinguished members of the community "for their support towards our schools and communities."

Diamataris, publisher of the daily newspaper National Herald. Great Benefactors selected by the educators for awards were Nikolaos Andriotis (Astoria), Zoi Koutsoupakis (Brooklyn), and Stefanos Tseperlis (Flushing). Teachers of the Year were Emilia Antonopoulos (Holy Trinity), George Kannelopoulos (St. Nicholas, Flushing), Eleftheria Ikouta (Plato, Brooklyn), Efrosini Mantsini (Three Hierarchs), Ekatrini Moschokarfis (Holy Cross, Whitestone), Andriana FIliotis (St. Irini Chrysovalantou, Astoria), and Stavroula Panagiotopoulos (New Jersey).
