Vale – Victor Con Stroumos
Victor ‘Vic’ Stroumos was most definitely a Mentonian for life.
His lifelong relationship with Mentone Grammar began in 1973 when he entered the School has an enthusiastic Year 7 student. He was a born leader and excelled as a Cadet Under Officer and completed his final year in 1978 as a School Prefect.
Having completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) at The University of Melbourne in 1981 and pursuing what would become a very successful career in this field, there was no better person to take on the role of Treasurer of The Mentonians Association – a role Vic fulfilled with excellence and dedication for
over 30 years.
In 2018, The Mentonians Association Committee unanimously voted to create a very special ‘Community Service Award’ to recognise Vic’s outstanding contribution to the alumni community and the Association over so many years.
Vic was always the first to volunteer to support community events and was a master of the BBQ at the Shoreham family picnic! He was a donor of the School and an active member of the Committee providing strong fiscal management and ensuring the long-term survival of the Association.
Vic’s sudden passing has been an incredible shock to the whole School community and especially his fellow Committee members. We are indebted to him for the loyalty and support he has shown to the School he loved for over 45 years. Our thoughts and prayers to go out to Vic’s family and friends at this very sad time. He will be truly missed.
Labore et Honore.
