The U.S. Ambassador to the Hellenic Republic Mr. Geoffrey Pyatt and the new U.S. Consul General in Thessaloniki Ms. Elizabeth Lee visited the American Farm School on Thursday 27/08. They met with the President Dr. Panos Kanellis and discussed issues of common interest such as the history, the structure and products of the American Farm School and Perrotis College.
“It’s always a great pleasure to be back on the campus of the American Farm School, really one of the crown jewels of the American educational legacy here in Greece, and especially in northern Greece. I’m especially pleased to be introducing our new Consul General in Thessaloniki, Liz Lee, like me a Californian, so somebody who understands the environment, who understands how important the work that the Farm School does is.”, said Mr. Pyatt.
He added that one of the distinguishing aspects of the American Farm School is the very strong relationship with the United States and promised that both the Embassy and the Consulate will continue the strong record of partnership with everyone on campus.
Shortly afterwards, Mr. Pyatt and Ms. Lee were given a campus tour by Dr. Kanellis and AFS staff.
