Dalida Keuroghlian after receiving the Ellis Island Medal

GLENDALE—Community activist Dalida Keuroghlian received a very prominent and prestigious award, the Ellis Island Medal of Honor hosted by the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations, otherwise known as NECO on May 12.

The Ellis Island Medal of Honor was presented to American citizens from across the country for their outstanding contributions to their communities, their nation and the world.

Keuroghlian has planted seeds in various projects such as political campaigns and church and cultural organizations that give back to Lebanon and America but focusing on the Armenian Diaspora here in Los Angeles and in Armenia.

There’s not a single person who knows her that does not have a story of her selflessness, kindness and generosity. She truly is one of the most intelligent, compassionate and sincere woman that you can come across. To be honored with this Medal in May was her lifetime achievement award. Her family and dear friends take pride in the legacy she has built.
