People in the News - Mehranian honored by coalition
Armenia Fund U.S. Western Region has announced that its president/chairperson of the board, Maria Mehranian, has been awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor by the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations. Mehranian will be honored at a special ceremony at Ellis Island in New York this Saturday, May 10.

The Ellis Island Medal of Honor is designed to pay homage to the immigrant experience and recognize individual achievement.

The medal is awarded to U.S. citizens from various ethnic backgrounds. The honorees are who exemplify outstanding qualities in both their personal and professional lives, while continuing to preserve the richness of their particular heritage.

NECO was established by William Denis Fugazy in 1984.
Since 2004, Mehranian has been serving as the president of Armenia Fund, Inc. in a volunteer capacity. Since its inception, the Fund has rendered more than $190 million in large scale infrastructure development projects as well as short term humanitarian aid.

Since 2004, the Fund has registered an unprecedented level of growth in the Western U.S. both in the number of donors and total amount raised.

Mehranian is the managing partner and chief financial officer of Los Angeles-based Cordoba Corporation, a civil engineering and construction management firm specializing in educational facilities, transportation systems, and water infrastructure.

Mehranian also serves on the La Cañada Flintridge Planning Commission. The municipal entity is responsible for reviewing proposed development and land use requests with the mandate to preserve and improve the quality of life in the city.

Mehranian is also a volunteer board member at the California Hospital Medical Center.

The Ellis Island Medals of Honor are sanctioned by the United States Congress and recipients’ names are listed in the Congressional Record. When Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) sponsored a resolution to officially recognize NECO’s Ellis Island Medal of Honor, she said, “Our heritage gives us roots. It brings meaning to our lives and binds us to each other.”

The Senate Resolution — passed unanimously — applauds the Medal of Honor for celebrating “the richness and diversity of American life.”
Sir: I read Fisk's latest on Saturday 4th in The Independent entitled Bravery, tears and broken dreams

It's been ages I have no news from you.
I hope all is well with you, with your husband and all at ACARL and your associates at other Italian Armenian societies.
Perhaps it will not surprise you if I tell that my response/letter to Fisk/Independent no Diaspora Armenian media 'dared' to publish it...thus permitting blatent disinformation to circulate freely. No matter. Attached is my latest paper on 24 April Genocide Day Conference at the House of Commons. I shall warmly welcome your and your colleagues comments.

With solidarity and warmest good wishes , Khatchatur
