Murat Guzel, a U.S.-based Turkish businessman in charge of the Democrat Party's National Ethnic Coordinating Council, was among those rewarded every year over immigrants' contributions to the country.

By Negla H Chawky* - It has been just over a year since my Uncle Bayazid passed away. More than an uncle he was a great friend. Because we lived close to each other in Manhattan we had frequent visits and long conversations over coffee and croissants. He also took me to many Turkish restaurants as Turkish food was one of his passions. He enjoyed eating and cooking his favorite dishes that were served in his childhood homes during his exile in France and Portugal.
