BRAVO! As we reach the end of another school year, the Committee for Armenian Students in Public Schools (CASPS) would like to congratulate the Glendale Unified School District, and extend its sincere thanks to the Board of Education, all District and school administrators, teachers, and personnel for meeting the challenges of a difficult year. Our hats off to tou!

For more than two decades at the end of the school year, CASPS has held a reception honoring high-achieving GUSD Armenian graduates and their families. Due to this year's unforseen circumstances, our honoring will be carried out virtually, thanks to the assistance of the District. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the District in helping us continue a decades-old tradition.

Working with the GUSD has always been a privilege. We look forward to continuing our collaboration in the school years to come. #CASPS #bravo👏 #GUSD #hatsofftoteachers #honoringreception #proudofourstudents

The Committee for Armenian Students in Public Schools (CASPS) held its annual Art Contest awards reception in the Board Room of the Glendale Unified School District (GUSD). Present were GUSD Superintendent Dr. Winfred Roberson, GUSD Board member, Mr. Shant Sahakian, CASPS Board members, as well as participating art-contest students and parents.

CASPS chooses a thought-provoking theme which is meant to stimulate high school students to think deeply about a particular subject and to express their thoughts, ideas, and emotions creatively through visual art. This year’s theme was “Peace.”

Submitted art work is then evaluated by three judges on artistic merit, creativity, and interpretation of theme, and winners are presented with monetary awards.

Our judges this year were: Mrs. Caroline Tufenkian of the Tufenkian Fine Arts Gallery in Glendale, Ms. Jaclyn Scott, principal of Mountain Avenue Elementary School and former head of GUSD’s Visual and Performing Arts department, and Mr. Harry Vorperian, a graphic artist with a variety of works.

The Committee for Armenian Students in Public Schools (CASPS) presented its annual leadership workshop, “Connecting to Your Community” on March 2, 2019. High-achieving Armenian juniors in the four Glendale Unified School District high schools were invited to attend. Seventy students braved the rainy weather and accepted the invitation by attending the workshop at the Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic church in La Crescenta.
CASPS Executive Director, Arsineh Hovannisian, welcomed the students and opened the workshop with the flag salute. After a brief description of the goals of CASPS, she introduced the Board members present. She welcomed Executive Team member and organizer of the leadership workshop, Mrs. Medea Kalognomos, who gave the students a brief description of what the day had in store for them.
Mrs. Kalognomos presented the first speaker of the day, Melina Sardar, M.A., CPLC, a life coach and counselor in the areas of career and emotional awareness. Ms. Sardar connected with and engaged the students by sharing her personal life journey. She used her life’s story to explain the difference between Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ). She explained that EQ is the ability to identify, understand, evaluate, and control one’s own emotions as well as the emotions of those around you. Speaking to the group of academically high achieving students, she reminded them that IQ “can get you in the door, but EQ will get you the promotion.” She urged the students to evaluate and monitor their EQ in order to be successful and a leader. She concluded her talk with a quick summary of the stepping stones of how to become a transformational leader.
Glendale Mayor Zareh Sinanyan and California Assembly member Adrin Nazarian, representing the 46th Assembly District were the next two speakers. Both civic leaders shared their life experiences and their views on what activism and leadership mean. Both leaders also implored the students to expand their horizons by volunteering. Mr. Sinanyan informed the students about the Student Ambassador Program. He urged them to apply to this program in order to gain an understanding of how city council meetings are conducted.
Subsequently, Dr. Hayk Jernazian, a licensed clinical psychologist, specializing in depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, and grief/loss gave a presentation to the students titled “Balancing Success and Psychological Health.” As with all the speakers of the day, Dr. Jernazian spoke to the students about the qualities of being a successful and healthy leader. He then led the students in case analyses, through which he elaborated on the ideas of identity development, confidence, and the importance of social interaction and relationships.
A group of enthusiastic young men from the UCLA’s AEO fraternity introduced the different Armenian organizations at the university and stated that the fraternity is considering how best to connect with Armenian high school students. The possibility of mentorship and/ academic tutoring is being discussed within the fraternity. They encouraged the high school students to persevere in the application process and extended a helping hand to anyone who needed their help in that process. The young men were met with great enthusiasm and many questions.
The workshop was brought to a close by Mr. Serob Abrahamian, Government Relations Coordinator at ANCA. Mr. Abrahamian familiarized the students with the mission and goals of the organization and introduced new opportunities available for growth. At the conclusion of the day, CASPS members were gratified to hear expressions of thanks from the high school students, and hope to see many of them apply the ideas and suggestions from the day and become our future leaders.
