This is the 2nd part of the podcast on the 2022 Areté Awards, hosted by Amalia Zavacopoulou, member of the Areté Awards Committee and Division chair for Social Studies at ACS Athens.

12 years ago, the community of ACS Athens initiated the annual Areté Awards in order to recognize students, faculty, and parents who promote Civic Responsibility through Conscious Citizenship, aiming to improve life and living on the planet. As a community that comes together to address the needs of others, we strive to promote civic responsibility and to model it for our students. And since Areté in English means virtue, our community members are always challenged to uphold a particular moral excellence, showing high ethical standards in their own life, the life of their family and their entire community.

In the second part, today, Amalia Zavacopoulou speaks with the parent recipient of the 2022 Areté Award for Civic Responsibility, Debbie Richards Perakis, also a member of the ACS Athens PTO, and with the Faculty Recipient of the Award, Antigoni Karnesioti Simantira.
