Receives AHEPA’s Pericles Award for demonstrated success as an elected official in government

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Last week, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) attended the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association’s (AHEPA) 46th Biennial Congressional Banquet where she was a recipient of AHEPA’s Pericles Award for her demonstrated history of excellence and success as an elected individual in government.

“As the proud daughter of a Greek immigrant, it’s truly an honor to receive the Pericles Award from AHEPA,” Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis said. “Pericles was a fighter for his people, which encompasses so much of what public service is all about. Our office has helped thousands of people resolve issues with government agencies, returned tens of millions of dollars to the district, and helped hundreds of people who’ve come the legal and right way become U.S. citizens. AHEPA stands for community service, civic responsibility, education and philanthropy. I appreciate their efforts to advance our shared values and look forward to our continued work together to strengthen and uphold the principles of freedom, democracy and civic engagement.”

Other 2024 recipients of the Pericles Award include U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Congressman Chris Pappas (D-NH). Congressman John Sarbanes (D-MD) received the 2024 Socrates Award.

“We are thrilled to present the AHEPA Pericles Award for excellence in public service to Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis,” AHEPA Supreme President Savas C. Tsivicos said. “She serves her constituents with integrity, passion, and staunch dedication. We are especially appreciative of her support of our community’s policies that strengthen our society and our national security.”
