PICO RIVERA—Armenian Mesrobian School will continue to celebrate its half-century of education and service to the community with a 50th anniversary Gala, which will take place on Saturday, February 20, 2016, at Armenian Apostolic Holy Cross Cathedral’s Bagramian Hall.

“The Gala is an opportunity to rally around Mesrobian School’s achievements and ensure continued progress for the students, families and communities Mesrobian School serves,” said daughter of one of the school’s founders, Goharik Gabriel, who is a member of the school’s 50th Anniversary Steering Committee.

A full half century has passed since the dream of Mesrobian School became a reality. From Breaking Ground in 1964 to Groundbreaking in 2015, Mesrobian is, in many ways, leading the way in education with its innovative approaches that have caught the attention of the education community – public, private, and independent.

The school’s achievements, spirit and student body are growing at a rapid pace not seen in years. Families across Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, and Orange Counties are converging upon the school as the good news continues to spread. When they arrive at Mesrobian, students and families are offered a safe and loving environment, where Armenian identity is thriving and academic excellence is a priority. Students receive the attention and nurturing they need to be successful in school and in life.

The Gala will reunite countless members of the Mesrobian family, which spans across generations, professions and even continents. Mesrobian School stands upon the shoulders of giants, the dedication and sacrifices of whom form the legacy upon which the school builds its bright future. The evening will honor select organizations and individuals who have had a major role in the development of the school.

Guests will include all graduating classes, past faculty and administration, parents, community members as well as Honorary Graduates of Mesrobian. Fun fact, Governor Jerry Brown is among those Honorary Graduates of Mesrobian School.
