FLUSHING, NY – The Gus Cherevas Estia-Pindus AHEPA Chapter 326, which has its base at the St. Nicholas Flushing community located in northeast Queens, celebrated AHEPA Day and presented scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each to three deserving high school seniors at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Flushing on June 26. The scholarship recipients were the following: Katie Metis, Victoria Vlachos, and Helena Douveas.

The scholarship awards presentation was made by the Scholarship Committee Co-Chairman, Dean Moskos, District 6 Governor, together with the newly elected AHEPA Chapter 326 President Jimmy Papageorgiou.

Following the church service, Chapter 326 hosted, together with the family of the chapter’s outgoing President Nick Voulkoudis in memory of his son Christos, a coffee hour at the Sarantakos Hall where church members greeted the scholarship award winners and their proud parents and family. The event was very well attended and all present had the opportunity to learn about AHEPA and considered applying for membership.

Chapter 326 has a long history of supporting education, and has offered scholarships since the early 1980’s. Over $60,000 in scholarships has been awarded since the year 2000. In addition to scholarships, the chapter’s philanthropic endeavors included donations for a total of $250,000 since 2016 to multiple causes, including St. Nicholas Ground Zero, St. Nicholas Flushing, the purchase of two K-9 dogs to benefit veterans who suffer from PTSD, to the Ronald McDonald House, and to the Asia Minor and Pontos Research Center to financially support the making of the film Lethal Nationalism: Genocide of the Greeks, among others.
