On April 19, 2005 six esteemed individuals were honored by The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation for their contributions to the American Experience. The 4th annual Ellis Island Family Heritage Awards were presented by the Foundation’s Founding Chairman Lee Iacocca in a noon ceremony held in the historic Great Hall, hosted by WNBC-TV's Jane Hanson. Commenting on the legacy of the Ellis Island immigrants, Lee Iacocca said, “They came here by the thousands, among them my mom and dad, but each and every story is its own. I cherish these stories because they are at the very core of who we are.”
