Kordellas-Tripp Foundation Award
Donor: Nicolas Kordellas and Shirley Tripp
The Kordellas-Tripp Foundation Nursing Award was established in 2015 through a generous donation by Nicolas Kordellas and Shirley Tripp.
Tripp graduated as a nurse from Archer Memorial Hospital in Lamont, Alta. in 1968. Her mother, Velma E. Martin Tripp, started as a teacher and then became a nurse, graduating from U of T around 1945. Her mother’s career and work with young children inspired Tripp to become a delivery nurse. Nicolas Kordellas was a student from Greece who graduated from U of T Engineering in 1959. It was his grandfather, Andreas Kordellas, a very successful engineer in Lavrion, Greece, who inspired him to study mechanical engineering in Canada.
