They join other outstanding members of Leadership 100 and of the Greek American Community who have been awarded the medal along with distinguished Americans from numerous ethnic backgrounds.
 
The Ellis Island Medal of Honor acknowledges Americans who represent “the very essence of the American way of life” with their contributions to the national identity while preserving the values and heritage of their ancestors. In honoring the accomplishments of the recipients, the medal is also meant to honor “the spirit, hard work and values” of those ancestors. Recipients have been chosen and acknowledged since 1996 by The National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations (NECO), which was created to recognize the diversity of the American people that make the nation great and to foster tolerance, respect and understanding among religious and ethnic groups. NECO is also committed to the restoration and maintenance of Ellis Island, the gateway for millions of immigrants to America that stands as a symbol for those who have made America a beacon of hope.
