We are so saddened by the loss of our dear friend and supporter Haig Misakyan of Toronto, Canada. He lived a life with purpose and love and will be greatly missed by the many children he helped in Armenia with his yearly contributions to the Atken Armenian Foundation. It is people like Mr. Misakyan with his encouragement and support that gives us the necessary wind in our sails and hope for a better world. He will be deeply missed.
The now yearly scholarship funded by the Misakyan Family's Hagop and Araxie Kestekian Foundation was to be announced on Valentine's Day. With the approval of the family, the 2018-19 recipients of the Haig & Virginia Misakyan Music Scholarships are announced herewith today, on the day of the funeral services to be held in Toronto.
Dear Haig, know that your work is continuing in Armenia, empowering and giving opportunities to these exceptional children.
Our heartfelt condolences on the loss of a great Man.
Thank you Haig.
Our Congratulations to ANNA GHARSLYAN & MARIAM ZHAMAKOCHYAN, 2018-19 LAUREATES, as THE MOST PROMISING AAF FELLOWS.
