In his remarks, Ambassador Morenés highlighted that the Officer’s Cross is an honor awarded to those who "have made an extraordinary contribution to the relationship of friendship and cooperation between Spain and the American community." 
 
The Ambassador underlined that Mrs. Myers has well proven this by "dedicating her professional career to educating new passionate Spanish teachers, creating and boosting high quality bilingual learning centers in the U.S." She also represents a "fundamental pillar that supports visiting professor and language assistant programs in the U.S. and Spain," among other achievements.
