The decoration was presented by Cristobal Marte Hoffiz, NORCECA President and FIVB First Executive Vice President, accompanied by several members of the Executive Committee and Board of Administration who also took part in the meetings.
A visibly emotional George Laffita expressed his gratitude on receiving the order.
“I receive this honor with humble and I am glad it has been presented by someone like Cristobal who has done so much to raise the NORCECA,” said George Laffita.
