Odile de Lyrot, Honorary Consul of the U.S. Virgin Islands, awarded
Not only has Odile de Lyrot taken care to promote French language and culture in the U.S. Virgin Islands, she has also forged close ties with authorities and with the local business community. Holding annual "French Heritage Week" is a guarantee of genuine and warm relationships celebrating both July 14 and the French historical and cultural heritage that many people claim.
