I was born in Kirkuk, attended the Assyrian School of Kirkuk and graduated in 1975. At the Assyrian School, I was envolved in many activities, such as dramas, dances, songs, etc. I was also one of the two Accordion players that plays with the school choir in all the school events and also in the yearly Christmas TV programs.
My Father Mr. Awisha Zekaria Lazar, has served many terms in the school committee. He arrived United States from Kuwait on Easter Sunday 1985. In 1986 was elected for the newly created Assyrian National Council of Illinois in Chicago for two terms. Served the Assyrian Church of the East (Mar Gewargis) Sunday School for four years.
Few years ago, he started the Assyrian School reunions in Chicago, and has been the main contributor to this web site. For Technical help or information, or to submit pictures, articles, or other material to be considered for this site, please Email Us.
