On Wednesday, April 15 in the Student Services Plaza, Valley College held an Armenian Heritage Celebration that included commemoration of the 100th year of the Armenian Genocide.

Hundreds of Monarchs and locals gathered on campus for the festivities, free food and entertainment. The event began at 12 p.m. and ended at 1:30 p.m.

The Armenian Heritage Celebration was sponsored by Valley’s Associated Student Union and Valley’s Student Equity Plan Task Force. Armenian natives and descendants brought a taste of the old country to Valley, as they performed traditional Armenian songs and dances.
