BURBANK, Calif. — Philanthropist Vartan Nazerian, a member of the Armenian Democratic Liberal Party Supreme Council, was given the St. Nerses the Gracious Medal from Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II with an accompanying pontifical encyclical. It was conferred by means of Primate of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church of America Archbishop Hovnan Derderian at St. Leon Armenian Cathedral in Burbank on May 5.
