LOS ANGELES — Taking time from his brief stay in Los Angeles, Edmond Y. Azadian, vice chairman of the Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) Board of Directors, paid an official visit to Arshag Dickranian School on Thursday, October 21.
He was accompanied by the Very Rev. Baret Yeretzgian and TCA Board member Vatche Semerdjian.
After being greeted by George K. Mandossian, chairman of the School Board of Trustees, and Principal Vartkes Kourouyan, the distinguished guests were led to the principal’s office, where they were briefed about the day to day operation of the school.
Azadian, a supporter of the school since its inception, was delighted to see the significant progress the school had made over the past three decades and its marked growth into becoming a prime learning institution.
The group then conducted an hour-long tour of the campus, meeting with staff members at the administrative offices, pre-Kindergarten toddlers and several upper-grade classrooms, where Azadian took time to speak the teachers and interact with the students, stressing upon the valuable education they receive at ADS.
At the conclusion of the tour, the visitors were invited to the Walter and Laurel Karabian Hall to join the students for lunch, which is prepared daily and served by the ladies of the PTO Lunch Committee.
