KERSAN AHARONIAN CLASSROOM IN DICKRANIAN SCHOOL
AZG Armenian Daily #182
Tekeyan Cultural Association, cognizant of its nation-building mission, in conjunction with its many chapters and centers worldwide, as well as educational and publication endeavors, 25 years ago planned and achieved one of its goals - the establishment of an Armenian Day school in densely-populated Hollywood, adjacent to St. John Armenian Church.
This educational institution, pre-kindergarten through 12th grade high school, played a basic and important role because of its visionary and dedicated leaders, as well as the generous public at large.
Thanks to the princely donation of philanthropists Mrs. Eleanor and the late Arshag Dickranian, the school was named after them - The TCA Arshag Dickranian Armenian School.
The School has graduated over 300 students, who have already graduated from respectable California universities and colleges, specializing in medicine, law, education, science, business administration and others, giving pride to their parents, the school and the Armenian community.
A couple of years ago, this educational institution embarked on an expansion project and completed the construction of a three-story imposing building this year. The students started to enjoy the new building with all its facilities.
A few individuals, students and friends of the late Kersan Aharonian - teacher, editor, historian and civic leader - came together and decided to raise funds to name a classroom in his name, in the conviction that the students passing through that classroom, will be inspired by Kersan Aharonian's legacy and enthusiasm in pursuing The Armenian Case until the realization of " The Great Dream".
We expect from his friends and others, and specially his students, who have been educated under his tutelage, to come forward and make contributions to honor the life and memory of Kersan Aharonian.
The committee is composed of Suzy Bahadrian. Prof. Osheen Keshisian, Dr. Minas Kojoyan, Avo Magarian and Harout Yeretsian.
Please send your tax-deductible donation to TCA Arshag Dickranian School, For Kersan Aharonian classroom, 1700 N, Cahuenga, Hollywood, CA 90038.
