Born and raised in Palos Verdes, CA, to loving parents,
Louise and (the late) George Bedrosian, along with her
2 sisters, Lynn and Beth. Her family has always been actively
involved in church. As a young girl, she attended St. James
Sunday school every Sunday, the Diocese’s Hye Camp every
summer, and participated in other social events such as
being presented as a Debutante in the Ladies Auxiliary
Debutante Ball. She graduated from UCLA with a BA in
Linguistics and Spanish, and then received a Masters Degree
in Education, a Single Subject Teaching Credential, and an
Administrative Credential from Cal State Dominguez Hills.
She has worked as a High School Teacher and an Elementary
Assistant Principal for many years in the Torrance Unified
School District. She and her husband, Steve, were married in St. James Armenian Church where they also baptized all 3 of their sons, Frankie, Peter, and Joe. One of her greatest gratifications as a parent is to now watch her boys attend and be actively involved in Sunday school, Hye Camp, and other Armenian organizations where they have made lifelong friends. Gail contributes the success of this Sunday school program to the devoted families and parish of this church and considers it a great honor and true pleasure to spend each Sunday with the youth of St. James. Mrs. Chelebian was recently appointed chairlady of the Christian Education Council (CEC) for the Western Diocese by His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian.
