“It is an extreme honor for us to have Mr. & Mrs. Katcho and Araxie Achadjian as Honorary Presidents of the 41st Annual Navasartian Games. The couple is filled with Armenian spirit and, as members of Homenetmen, have done their utmost to familiarize their surroundings with the Armenian culture. As a California State Assemblymember, Katcho Achadjian has worked tirelessly to raise awareness to the recognition of the Armenian Genocide. The Homenetmen Regional Executive strongly encourages the community to bring their presence to the Victory Banquet in support of our youth’s accomplishments throughout the Navasartian Games and in appreciation of our Honorary Presidents,” expressed Homenetmen Regional Executive Chairperson Manuel Marselian.
