THE MISSION OF THE ANTONAKOS FOUNDATION
The mission is to honor the memories of Melet, Kim, Olivia, Mills, and Ana Antonakos by awarding scholarships to students who best exemplify the characteristics of their family: willingness to serve, dedication to education and athletics, and love for their community.
Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.
Then they began to argue among themselves about who would be the greatest among them. 25 Jesus told them, “In this world the kings and great men lord it over their people, yet they are called ‘friends of the people.’ 26 But among you it will be different. Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant. 27 Who is more important, the one who sits at the table or the one who serves? The one who sits at the table, of course. But not here! For I am among you as one who serves.
Matthew 23:11-12 (MSG)
Do you want to stand out? Then step down. Be a servant. If you puff yourself up, you’ll get the wind knocked out of you. But if you’re content to simply be yourself, your life will count for plenty.
But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you[—see that you also excel in this grace of giving.
