In today's episode, we have invited two remarkable colleagues who have dedicated their careers to education, supporting the school's operation, character, and spirit, and are now spearheading the improvement and development efforts of ACS Athens. Joining us are Chris Perakis, a retired educator with decades of experience within the school community as a teacher, special education specialist, and program leader, and Lydia Skampavia, an alumna and member of the executive team of our ACS Athens Global Alumni organization.

Throughout their tenure, both guests have witnessed firsthand the transformative power of institutional development, from its crucial role in enhancing educational resources to its profound impact on student experiences. Their combined expertise offers unique perspectives on navigating the challenges and seizing the opportunities inherent in fundraising for educational institutions. From cultivating donor relationships to leveraging alumni networks, our guests exemplify the collaborative spirit and unwavering dedication required to take ACS Athens forward.
