G eorge Keverian was a man who dedicated his entire life to public service. He was kind, honest, smart, and above all, put others fi rst before himself. He was in tune with his heritage and was proud to be Armenian. The Keverian family joined by the Alfred Lattanzi family, wanted to fi nd a way to keep his legacy alive and use his life lessons to inspire the next generation of young leaders. They have created the Honorable Speaker George Keverian Public Service Scholarship to do just that. Two scholarships were awarded on Friday, April 12, 2019, during the 104th Annual Ceremony to Commemorate the Armenian Genocide, in the Chamber of the House of Representatives, where Speaker Keverian did the work of the people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. While in offi ce, Speaker Keverian initiated this annual event to commemorate the Armenian Genocide. The mission of the scholarship is “To preserve the memory of Speaker George Keverian by supporting the work of students who strive to create positive change by helping individuals reach their potential, communities achieve their goals, and society advance the principles of democracy.” It is Speaker Keverian’s family and Alfred Lattanzi’s hope that the next generation of Armenian-Americans and students of Speaker Keverian’s beloved Everett will continue forward by giving back to our community. The 2019 Everett High School (EHS) recipient is Joshua Powers, who will graduate this year having attained a most impressive record. Academically, he is ranked 5th in his class of 515. Joshua is intent on making a positive impact on society and has already held positions of leadership and service, including President of the Student Council and President of the National Honor Society. He aspires to increase “the connection between diff erent types of people and create a more welcoming and tolerant society.” Maxwell Fathy also received a scholarship. He was raised in Newton, graduated from Tufts University, Cum Laude, and is currently studying for his Master of Arts Degree in Law and Diplomacy at The Fletcher School at Tufts. Alfred Lattanzi, a close friend of Speaker Keverian, publicly awarded the scholarships and shared some refl ections on the legacy that George left behind. Alfred’s speech was heartwarming and moving while he refl ected on his incredibly tight bond with the Speaker and their friendship. Alfred and the Speaker spoke every single day of their adult lives; they were inseparable and Alfred’s speech refl ected that. The Honorable Speaker George Keverian Public Service Scholarship is awarded on an annual basis through the Everett Public Schools and the Armenian Students Association. Each year the recipients are awarded publicly at the annual Armenian Genocide Commemoration event held at the State House.
