Queens Gazzete, May 30th, 2008
As an international audience of 300 persons gathered at the Pan Macedonian Studies Center in Whitestone applauded, scholarships were conferred on three students enrolled in the Modern Greek Language and Literature program at St. John’s University. George Stamboulis and Calliope Pappas each received a 2008 Panchiaki Korais Society scholarship and Anthony Michaelides of Flushing received the 2008 Theodore Spyropoulos scholarship at the Pan-Macedonian Conference on May 30.
Panchiaki Korais Society President Kostas Kojes presented Stamboulis and Pappas with the Panchiaki Korais Society scholarship and Nancy Biska, governor of the Pan Macedonian District of Greater New York, presented the Spyropoulos scholarship to Michaelides.
The Panchiaki Korais Society scholarship program was initiated in 2000 and has awarded $9,000 in scholarships to St. John’s students.
Michaelides is an honor student at St. John’s University and a co-editor of “The Greek American Experience II” by Professor Catherine Tsounis, sponsored through a grant by the Pan Macedonian Studies Center and state Senator Frank Padavan.
