Nominate a Lowell Leader


The International Institute of New England (IINE) is celebrating its 100th anniversary!

In recognition of 100 years of serving newcomers to Lowell, IINE will thank the local community for a century of support by honoring 100 Lowellians who have influenced, led, and been part of Lowell’s vibrant immigrant community.

IINE invites the Greater Lowell community to help name 100 of the most admirable leaders from Lowell’s immigrant community who have done great things in their fields, as well as locally born Lowellians who have supported immigrants and immigrant issues.

Anyone from the community may nominate people they think deserve to be recognized, and those selected will be honored at a public gala at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium on May 1, 2019.

Mayor Samaras is a former board member of the International Institute and has worked closely with the organization over the past year, including projects such as Pay for Success Program and Welcoming Week Lowell.

The deadline for nominations is January 31st.  Please visit for more information and to submit your nominee(s)!
