“Clara Barton, Our Angel Too”. Reads the US Vice Ambassador Clark Praise, for the Quantum students, ahead of the 100th anniversary of the Genocide
Quantum College maintains warm relations with the US Embassy in Armenia. In 2013, the college was the first one in Armenia to join the “Fulbright English teaching assistant” program, and the volunteers of the embassy began working with college students, and in spring 2014, the ambassador John Heffern visited Quantum College. A few days ago, in the framework of the 100th anniversary of Genocide, the Vice Ambassador Clark Praise and his wife Anett Praise, visited the college, to read the book “ Clara Barton, Our Angel Too”, published by the US Embassy. Clara Barton is the American Red Cross Founder, a wise and great leader, who together with her associates helped to save thousands of Armenians in 1890’s, for which she was perceived as an angel. The Quantum students listened to Clara Barton’s life and activity story with pleasure, after which they asked questions to the Vice Ambassador. At the end of the meeting, the guests walked through the new building of the college. When Mr. Heffern visited the college the new building was under active reconstruction and today they saw the results of that work, i.e. the completely reconstructed building.
