SAN FRANCISCO—The Krouzian-Zekarian-Vasbouragan Armenian School Principal and School Board are pleased to announce that Canadian-Armenian Actress Anne Bedian will be the keynote speaker at the annual banquet that will take place on November 3.
Anne Bedian (Ani Nahabedian) is a 1st generation Canadian-Armenian, born and raised in Montreal within the thriving Armenian community present there. Her school, church and activities at the Armenian Community Center were an intrinsic part of her life. At the age 17, she enrolled in the Canadian Armed Forces and served 3 years in the Navy. She later attended Concordia University, majoring in Accountancy for 4 years until the “acting bug” finally caught up with her.
Anne began her career in film & television with small parts in Montreal and Toronto and eventually moved to New York and finally ended up in Hollywood in 2006. She has since worked with Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm (which received a 2012 Emmy nomination), JJ Abrams on the HBO pilot The Anatomy of Hope, Kevin Bacon on The Closer as well as CBS’s The Ex List, and ABC’s Lost. Other credits also include Law & Order Criminal Intent, CSI Vegas, The Unit, NCIS, Meteor, The Grid, Lie To Me and Combat Hospital. Always a strong supporter of Hye Tahd, she is proud and honored to connect with Armenians everywhere.
Now in its 32nd year, the Krouzian-Zekarian-Vasbouragan Armenian School continues to provide an excellent bilingual, bicultural private education in the heart of San Francisco. The school was established in 1980 for students Pre-K to Eight Grade. The first graduating class was in 1988 and today has more than 300 alumni. KZV offer our students, a rich educational and cultural foundation, an academically rigorous learning environment, a keen sense of community, and a model of learning and respect for the rest of their lives.
