"I first met George when I needed assistance with a project which utilized students reporting election returns to the News Election Service from polling places as return were tabulated. George was a young attorney working for a local law firm and he provided invaluable assistance and advice to assist in the successful completion of the project. The students gained experience in the political process and raised funds for other academic projects.

A short time later, I became involved with a mock trial project conducted by the Cook County Courts Chief Judge's Office. Part of the program involves using attorney coaches to assist the students and teacher in preparations for presenting a hypothetical case at the Daley Center. George has volunteered to be the "Attorney Coach" for Washington High School for over ten years. He receives no compensation for his time and has freely given of this time and expertise. Washington High School has had a model mock trial program and has received numerous awards and recognition due in no small part to Mr. Tamvakis' assistance.

A few years ago, my students started a project to restore veteran markers in a local state park (Wolf Lake). The project grew into a community wide effort which culminated in a community celebration which rededicated the markers, dedicated a veteran's memorial in the form of a Nike missile, and set up a kiosk to explain the significance of the site to visitors. George worked with the committee as the plans took shape and donated the funds necessary to construct the information kiosk which continues to inform visitors to the site.

I could go on but feel that these examples of community service show George's character and commitment to the community and its students."
