St. James ACYO

Meet the Board


NATALIE CHEDOTTE - ChairLady
I'm a 17 year old high school senior, working towards becoming a Cosmetologist. I'm so excited to have the opportunity to further our ACYO! 


SUMMER  GAROIAN - Vice ChairLady
I am the newly elected Historian on the ACYO board. I have been a part of the St. James community for the past 4 years and a member of the ACYO for 2 years now. I am happy to say that this is my first year as a teacher at the St. James Sunday School. I look forward to serving as Vice ChairLady and working with my fellow ACYO members.


NERCES DER-APRAHAMIAN – Treasurer
I am excited to be the Vice Chairman of St. James ACYO this year. I am 21 years old and I have been in ACYO for a few years now. I attend El Camino College and I plan on becoming an accountant. I look forward to this coming year in ACYO.

ANAHID DER-APRAHMIAN– Social Media Manager/Historian 
​My name is Anahid Der-Aprahamian and this year I will be serving on the St. James ACYO executive board as the social media manager/historian.

Currently, I am attending Pepperdine University in pursuit of a Masters Degree in psychology. I am the oldest of three siblings. My brothers and I joined ACYO in 2010 when we were invited to join our chapter's girl's volleyball and boy's basketball teams. When we first joined ACYO I wasn't a very active member and I did not attend meetings very often. However, in 2015 I began attending meetings again and was nominated for the position of recording secretary. I was re-elected for the position in 2016 and 2017 as well. Last year I served on the executive board as the treasurer. I am glad I rediscovered ACYO in 2015 because it has provided me with countless opportunities to meet new people and make new friends, to be a part of the Armenian/Christian community, and to grow as and individual.


Thank you St. James ACYO for giving me yet another opportunity to serve on your executive board. I'm excited to see what new and exciting adventures 2019 has in store for our ACYO!!
