Preserving Hellenism: March 25th, 1821
One hundred and ninety-seven years ago, on the day of the Annunciation, Peloponnesian chieftains took the banner of revolution to the monastery of Agia Lavra to be blessed by Metropolitan Germanos of Patras. And so, we remember this day, March 25, 1821 as the beginning of the long and continued struggle for freedom for the Hellenic Nation. Brave men and women such as Theodoros Kolokotronis, Laskarina Bouboulina, Papaflessas, Manto Mavrogenous, and many others fought and sacrificed their lives so the Hellenic nation could be free.
Let us not forget, however, the intellectual warriors of the Modern Greek Enlightenment. Without great thinkers like Rigas Feraios, Adamantios Korais, Eugenios Voulgaris, and members of the Filiki Eteria our Hellenism would not have been re-discovered and the revolution would not have taken place.
We believe, just as they did, that knowledge and education is fundamental to Hellenism, and that is why the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation supports and ensures the continuation of Hellenism by helping our young people receive a college education.
