Over fifty years ago, a group of St. Vasilios women shared a common desire: that a scholarship be awarded to aid the deserving youth of the church in their pursuit of a college education. They knew that in order to do the most good, this money would not only have to help the current generation, but somehow meet the growing needs of the future. So when the first scholarship of $100.00 was established in June of 1956, it was with the understanding that their work was far from over. This marked the birth of the St. Vasilios P.T.A. Scholarship Program.
In just ten years, the scholarship grew to an impressive $500.00 dollars and by 1969 the program reached an important milestone with the award of the first annual $1,000.00 scholarship. Under the diligent guidance of Fr. Andrew Demotses, the selfless dedication of the parish and the tireless determination of the P.T.A. members, the scholarship program continued to grow. Today we honor the vision of those women who first established the St. Vasilios Scholarship by awarding thirty-six $1,000.00 scholarships, one $1,500.00 scholarship and one $2,500.00 scholarship to thirty-eight outstanding members of our church who intend to pursue a higher education.
