ACG Trustee Dr. Anthony Kronman, who gave the commencement speech at PIERCE-The American College of Greece this year, and was also on hand for the DEREE commencement ceremony, gave a fascinating interview to To Vima Sunday newspaper, which was published on July 12.

Conducted during a very difficult time for Greece with the recent imposition of capital controls, Dr. Kronman, an enthusiastic philhellene, discusses Greeceā€™s European identity and the hopes of its youth, which he finds very optimistic and steadfast in their desire to stay in the country and help it rebuild.
