News & Announcements

Monthly Genocide Commemoration Assembly

<b> Monthly Genocide Commemoration Assembly </b> On Wednesday, September 24, DHS held its monthly genocide commemoration assembly. This month’s assembly was organized by the Social Science department. It was designed to be the voice of the students. Thus, the emcee was Ani Kazanjian, after opening remarks by Mr. Hagopian.

The first highlight of the assembly was the introduction of the guest speaker, Mayor Zareh Sinanyan of Glendale. He spoke to the students about how they could be politically involved Armenians. He emphasized his encouragement and approval of the civic activity of the Armenian youth in Los Angeles. Mayor Sinanyan also spoke of his personal and professional history, and how events in his life catapulted his professional career. The audience’s demeanor was indicative of their interest in his message.

The second highlight of the event was the student performances. All DHS students had written poems or personifications of assigned genocide topics. The Social Science department teachers chose two from each grade to be presented on stage at the assembly. The authors and presenters were: Nicholas Mihranian, Nina Ghazarian, Lemmy Haddad, Lina Kafadarian, Christopher Sarkissian, Hagop Chinchinian, Arthur TerPogosyan, Raffi Balci, Ariana Daldemian, Shant Nazaryan, Sevan Gharibian, Christie Arakelian, Nora Galoustian, Sarine Kotoyan, Natel Costanian and Sareen Ishanyan. Each presentation was emotional, informative and eye-opening for the students. The students’ works proved to be a learning moment for all.

The third highlight was an accompanying slide show of pictures of the disturbing history of genocide, compiled by Vahn Voskian.

The assembly closed with moving remarks by the emcee. The silence in the auditorium was chilling and indicative of the fact that this was indeed a very memorable assembly.
