In his acceptance speech, Captain Tsakos thanked City University for the great honour and speaking to the graduating class he paid tribute to shipping and to all seafarers. Specifically, he mentioned :
“This success has not been the accomplishment of one man, one family or even one single generation.  It has been the collective outcome of hard work and sacrifices over many decades, indeed centuries.
The entire shipping industry, which has grown to be one of the greatest and most well-run industries in the world, is the result of serious planning, wide cooperation, continuous training, ability to adjust to changes and disciplined behaviour and commitment by all its protagonists and employees, whether on board or ashore.”
Captain Tsakos wished all the graduates success and the fulfillment of all their dreams.”
