FRESNO — The Armenian Studies Program of California State University, Fresno, will hold its 24th Annual Banquet on Sunday, March 11, 2012 at the Fort Washington Golf and Country Club in Fresno.
This year’s Banquet will recognize and honor Dr. Richard G. Hovannisian, AEF Professor Emeritus of Modern Armenian History at UCLA. Dr. Hovannisian has a career of more than fifty years in the field of Armenian Studies, excelling in scholarship, teaching, and community service. He is a founding member of the Society for Armenian Studies.
The Armenian Studies Program will also be celebrating its 35th anniversary at the Banquet. Armenian courses have been taught at Fresno State since the 1960’s, but Dr. Dickran Kouymjian established the modern Program in 1976-1977.
More than fifty student recipients of Armenian Studies scholarships and grants for 2011-2012 will be recognized at the Banquet, as well as students who are graduating this year with a Minor in Armenian Studies.
The Armenian Studies Banquet brings together Fresno State students, faculty, administrators, and the community, to celebrate the achievements of the Program and its students.
The reception will begin at 5:00PM followed by the Banquet at 6:00PM.
Tickets are available at $50 per person, with a special price of $25 for Fresno State students and Fresno State faculty. Reservations for tables of 10 are also being accepted.
