Alumni in the News: Alex Yemenidjian, Class of 1973
Argentinian by birth, Armenian by ancestry, and American by dreams made true; Alex Yemenidjian immigrated to the United States in 1968 at a very young age. He attended Ferrahian Armenian High School from the 8th grade until he graduated in 1973 as one of the two valedictorians of his class.
Alex Yemenidjian, along with his classmates which includes his wife Arda Koujakian, holds a proud place here at Ferrahian.
