Lt. Lola Abrahamian, president of The Campbell Center Foundation board of directors, was appointed president of Soroptimist International of Glendale at a luncheon on June 18. Abrahamian, a 15-year veteran of the Glendale Police Dept., succeeds Glendale Councilwoman Paula Devine.
“Looking at the roster of presidents who have preceded me I know I have some very big shoes to fill,” said Abrahamian. “I am looking forward to following in the footsteps of my Soroptimist sisters who have been role models for me throughout my involvement with SIG and working collaboratively with everyone in our club toward our common goal.”
A life-long resident of Glendale, Abrahamian has been a member of SIG for the past three years. She has chosen as her theme “Enthusiasm Moves the World.”
Said immediate past President Paula Devine, “I have no doubt that under Lola’s leadership our club will move the world with enthusiasm, dedication and passion. She will most definitely set the tone by example for our membership to follow.”
