This grant is awarded in loving memory of Eleftherios Kormpas that passed away from lung cancer at the age of 42 in 1987.  He came from a small village in Pelio, Agios Vlassios.  His family, and especially his youngest son, Georgios, decided to dedicate this grant to his memory as he was his inspiration for a better education and to become an English Teacher.
