George Simonian, CHSAA Executive Director “This typifies Margaret”
“I feel that my education has been a means to an end. Throughout my academic career, I took my studies seriously, got good grades, but was intent on making my way into the real world. I feel that I have devoted my life to serving others, and in trying to enhance the lives of as many as possible. This takes form in many ways, including instilling the love of reading in child through the magic found in libraries, teaching young choristers to sing & watching many of make music a focal point in their lives, feeding those less fortunate than I, and widening the scope of an elementary child’s education by bringing special programs into the school. For my family and me, being host to our Chernobyl children as been a life-changing experience. It is a challenge to host someone from a completely different culture who does not speak you language. The pleasure derived from watching their awe discovering so much that we take for granted, which can include basics like swimming in a pool, seeing the ocean, or even having indoor plumbing. We took one set of children to NYC and seeing the Statue of Liberty, was a dream come true. My husband has been so profoundly changed by this experience that he has traveled twice to the Chernobyl region to see children that we have hosted previously, and to try to gain a greater understanding of the magnitude of the problem and what can be done to help. I have enjoyed serving the community in which I grew up, and will continue to try to make the world a better place in whatever small ways I can”.
