Condolences to the Spyropoulos family

The Task Force on the National Standards for Learning and Teaching Modern Greek Language extends sincere condolences to the Spyropoulos family.
It is with great sadness that we were informed about the passing of a great man
and a true Hellene, Mr. Spyropoulos. With his continuous generosity the Task Force of Greek Language Education Professionals was able to create The National Standards and Curriculum for the Modern Greek Language in the US and to promote Greek Language and Culture Education as a profession. His kindness and support made this work possible. Our hearts and prayers are with his wife Erika and his daughter
