The keynote speaker was Professor Richard Hovanissian, who spoke about the history of the Armenian community in California.

In his message to the students, the Prelate addressed them as the future leaders and representatives of the Armenian-American community and advised them of their responsibilities to the prosperity of both this nation and our Armenian community.  Stressing that education is a life-long journey, he urged them to keep learning and keep growing spiritually and mentally, and citing a passage from Proverbs, reminded them to trust in the Lord with all their hearts and trust in Him to guide and direct their paths.  In conclusion, the Prelate prayed for God to bless them, to grant them strength and wisdom to overcome obstacles, patience and perseverance to pursue their ambitions, and for the Lord to be their guide and protector in their journey through life.

The event included the presentation of certificates and mementos to the students, and the Armenian Educational Foundation awarded scholarships to the top students.  CASPS also honored Dr. Kathy Fundukian-Torossian for her assistance to the committee.

On Wednesday, June 6, the Prelate will attend the 6th annual CASPS reception honoring Armenian graduates from LAUSD, which will take place at Grant High School.
