Dedicated to my immediate academic family, my wonderful graduate students and postdocs and Stefan Timoshenko's academic great, great, great, great, great, great grandchildren. Dear friends, I was brought up in Greece to believe in the power of families. As a result families are very important to me and so are all of you, whom I consider to be my extended academic family. This is exactly the reason for which I feel so excited and honored to receive the Timoshenko Medal in front of you tonight since I truly consider all of you, working in the general area of mechanics at all length and time scales, as my cherished academic brothers and sisters, parents and grandparents. So please allow me to make “Academic Family” my theme for tonight, because I truly feel that in addition to inspiration and creativity, collegiality and mentoring are the two most important corner stones of our profession.
