Hellenic College Students Receive Distinguished PanHellenic Scholarships
Three Hellenic College undergraduate students have won this year's distinguished PanHellenic "most exceptional scholars award" and have been inducted into the PanHellenic Honors Society. Each of them also received a $10,000 scholarship, which has eliminated their need to take out student loans.
Alexandra Catherine Drechsler is studying Elementary Education and Religious Studies at Hellenic College. She graduated high school cum laude scholar, AP Scholar of Distinction, and Indian Prairie Scholar. She was a four-year varsity letter-winner in cross country and a chamber orchestra member. Alexandra loves Orthros, chant classes, and the beautiful Orthodox community at HCHC. In the future, she hopes to serve the Church as a missionary or teacher.
Theofanis Joseph Rauch is majoring in Religious Studies at Hellenic College, and hopes to complete the Master of Divinity graduate program and be ordained an Orthodox priest. Theofanis is also a talented electric bass player and has performed with several musical groups.
