This year’s scholarship recipients shared heartfelt remarks and acceptance speeches thanking AHEPA Chapter 445 and the scholarship sponsors for their awards.
The scholarship recipients are as follows:

AHEPA Past President Demetrios Krontiris was honored for his great contributions to the Chapter during his years in office.
Also honored were Liana, Yianni, and Nikolaos Krontiris, the winners of the International Hellenic History Tournament. After winning the local contest in Cherry Hill, NJ in May 2022, the trio traveled to Disney World, Orlando, FL to the AHEPA Supreme Convention in July 2022 where they took the title over the Canadian team.
