ACG Celebrates Launch of Innovative Internship Program that Places Students Around the World
On June 1st ACG celebrated the innovative LIBRA Internship program through which DEREE students spend up to a year abroad on a specially designed internship at one of the Libra subsidiaries and a semester at a partner school in the US or the UK.
George Logothetis, Chairman and CEO of the Libra Group, and the inspiration behind the newly created Libra Internship Program at The American College of Greece, visited the Aghia Paraskevi campus to address students, alumni, faculty and staff about the origins of the program. Mr. Logothetis’ remarks explaining the reasons he and his family established the program and his call to others in a position to help to act on behalf of Greece and Greek youth were inspirational.
Mr. Logothetis pointed out that “everyone has a duty to help; helping is actually doing things, and we all have a duty to help, however we can.” This belief in helping others has resulted in a program that provides transformational experiences for ACG students, the impact of which will be felt for many years to come.
In a special citation, ACG President David G. Horner thanked Mr. Logothetis for his belief in the College and support of its students.
Guests also learned how the program operates, viewed video testimonials from some of the 10 students on assignment around the world, and met the 2013 interns.
