Chicago, IL – On February 15, 2018, in observance of International Greek Language Day, February 9th, MWRD President Spyropoulos honors some of the Greek Schools in the area for their continued effort in the teaching of the Greek language. The day was officially declared last month and this was the first of many celebrations to come.

“The Greek language is the longest documented language and is spoken today by over 13 million people. Its foundation can be found in many of the sciences such as mathematics, astronomy and philosophy, to name a few. We encourage people to celebrate and share the Greek language and culture. We acknowledge and commend these schools for their continued efforts through their educational programs which help spread and preserve our culture”, said MWRD President Spyropoulos.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District is an award-winning special purpose government agency responsible for wastewater treatment and stormwater management. MWRD’s mission is to protect the health and safety of the public, the quality of the water supply source (Lake Michigan) and protect businesses and homes from flood damages.
