EDUCATION

Dear Chairman Vorkas,
Please allow me to express my gratitude for being
selected as a recipient of the AHEPA National Educational
Foundation Scholarship in honor of Nick Cost and Carlos Touris.
As a proud Greek American studying Greek Orthodox Theology, it is
my hope to one day faithfully share with others the beautiful relationship
between Hellenism and Orthodoxy. Because of the example set forth by
my immigrant grandparents and parents in light of this relationship, I have
been able to accomplish many things academically, professionally, and
personally.
This scholarship will assist in my studying at Holy Cross Greek
Orthodoxy School of Theology so that I may share our Greek Orthodox faith
with both those who know of it and those who do not. On a recent visit
to the Archdiocesan Headquarters, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios
shared with us how the difference between Greek Americans and other ethnic groups is that Greek Americans still yearn to learn about their motherland after having been in America for six or seven generations. Along those
lines, it is my hope to learn the tenets of the Greek Orthodox faith and Greek
heritage to share it with future generations. Thank you!

Dear Chairman Vorkas,
I cannot thank you enough for
the generosity and support you've
given to me through the gift of the
P.A. Margaronis Scholarship. As a
second-generation Greek American,
I know the opportunity to pursue
my calling in the field of medicine
is only possible because of the sacrifices made by those that came before
me. I am proud of my cultural and
religious heritage and see medicine
as a way to give back to a community that has helped me come so
far. Your investment in my education is extremely appreciated. Thank
you for helping make my m e d i cal school journey more
affordable for my family.
