Stanford University recognizes ACS Athens faculty

Stanford University recognizes ACS Athens faculty Stanford University recognizes ACS Athens faculty

ACS Athens' own tennis instructor, Chris Kourtis, received Stanford University recognition for his exceptional teaching, his dedication as an educator and a mentor and for his contribution to the future of his students, to Stanford University itself and to the ACS Athens community. Stanford University shared with our school the letter of recognition signed by Richard H. Shaw, Dean of Undergraduate Admission and Financial Aid. The letter contains a statement signed by a former student of Mr. Kourtis and a member of Stanford Class of 2022: "Mr. Chris has taught me to appreciate the small details of life. From receiving World Cup Stickers as a gift to hitting hours of rallies on the tennis courts, I have been blessed with the greatest memories with him throughout my eight years of growing up under his guidance. He is always surrounded by kids of all age, attracted by his ability to make every little experience memorable. I thank him for all he has done for me, as my mentor, my coach and most importantly my friend."

ACS Athens President Dr. Stefanos Gialamas, in communicating this outstanding remark with the rest of the faculty, states: "ACS Athens is proud of its faculty and the impact it has on our students. We are honored by this manifestation of excellence."
