ATHLETICS

Athletic Excellence Honored at Supreme Convention
The AHEPA National Athletic Department presented awards
to outstanding athletes, scholar-athletes, and former athletes
at its Athletic Luncheon held at the 94th Supreme Convention,
July 27, Las Vegas, Nev. The luncheon presented a special
opportunity to recognize Hellenes who excel in their individual sports or who display excellence in the classroom, on
the field of athletics and volunteerism within their respective
communities. They are committed to perpetuating and promoting these ideals, all part of the AHEPA family's mission.
"We are thrilled to present our national AHEPA athletic awards,"
then Supreme President John W. Galanis said. "Each recipient is
truly deserving of the accolades they have received during their
athletic careers. They have worked extremely hard to achieve
excellence and reach great heights in their respective sport."

was named a 2015 All-Star for the first time. In the 2015 World
