LOS ANGELES – Loyola Marymount University (LMU) Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts Basil P. Caloyeras Center for Modern Greek Studies hosts the annual Zoe Caloyera Distinguished Lecture and Recognition Award on Wednesday, June 9 at 7 PM PDT, as a virtual event. 

This signature lecture series brings to LMU outstanding individuals in the fields of art, culture, science, and public life relevant to the ongoing work of the Caloyeras Center. It is made possible through the generous support and commitment of Nasreen Babu-Khan and Howard Lehroff to Hellenic Studies and the Southern California Greek-American community.

As part of the Center’s ongoing commemorations of the 2021 anniversary and celebration of 200 years of Greece as a modern state, Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, ambassador-at-large of the Hellenic State and the president of the GREECE 2021 committee charged by the Greek government to organize the bicentennial celebrations, will be honored with a Leadership Award for her life-long commitment and many contributions to public life, education, and philanthropy; as well as her tireless promotion of Hellenic values and ideals, in Greece and abroad.
