Hacop Baghdassarian Donates $250,000 to Chamlian Gymnasium

The Baghadassarian family; three generations of Armenian values

GLENDALE—The Chamlian Armenian School’s Board and Administration announced a generous donation of $250,000 by Mr. and Mrs. Hagop and Hilda Baghdassarian towards the Gym construction fund. The Baghdassarians have a long history of community involvement, philanthropy, and dedication to Armenian causes in the United States and, moreover, they have an unwavering commitment to the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh.

The donation announcement was made on Monday, January 6, 2014, during the Western Prelacy’s traditional “Prelate’s New Year and Christmas Dinner” celebration. In honor of this generous donation, the new gym will be designated as the “Hagop and Hilda Baghdassarian Gymnasium.”

The school is very grateful to the Baghdassarians for their continued support and commitment to the well-being and success of our youth.

Mr. and Mrs. Baghdassarian are the proud parents of two Chamlian alumni, Gevik and Peter Baghdassarian, and devoted grandparents to their five children, three of whom are Chamlian students.

“This is a very generous donation and will certainly go a long way in securing the funding for the construction of the gym” said Principal Vazken Madenlian. “What makes this touching, is the fact that hundreds of Armenian children, and perhaps their children, will play and enjoy themselves in the newly constructed gym.”
