HACF: Remembering Senator Paul Sarbanes

December 25, 2020

NEW YORK – The Hellenic-American Cultural Foundation (HACF) released a statement remembering the late Senator Paul Sarbanes. The full statement follows:

Senator Paul Sarbanes passed away on December 6 after a long and distinguished career, including 36 years in Congress. Many of you will remember that Senator Sarbanes presented the inaugural event of the Hellenic American Cultural Foundation on May 3, 2012 at The University Club in New York. He shared his views and reflections on the meaning of public service. We asked him to speak for about 45 minutes and take questions – but after he graciously answered queries from the audience after one and a half hours, we moved to continue the session over drinks! The event was unforgettable.

We are eternally grateful to the Senator for providing the Foundation with an exceptional beginning. Former Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski described Senator Sarbanes as a person who “believed that discussion and debate should always be based on civility, intellectual rigor, and respect for others. He was a workhorse, not a show horse, who cared more about getting the job done and getting it done right, than in taking credit.” A fitting tribute to a wonderful public servant, who will be missed by all.
