The employees of the Polytechnic University were saddened by the news of the death of Rima Demirtschyan, director of Karen Demirtschyan charity foundation, who was a widow of the National hero of Armenia, statesman and political leader Karen Demirtschyan.
Life of Rima Demirtschyan was always connected with the Polytechnic University. Chairman of the women committee by Polytechnic University Rima Demirtschyan had her contribution in the establishment of Polytechnic nursery school back in 1980s that has become our pride and honor of our university.
Mrs. Demirtschyan initiated to award scholarship in the name of Karen Demirtschyan to one of the best students of the Institute of Mechanics, Machine Building, Transport Systems and Design of the Polytechnic University on a yearly basis.
There were many events at the Polytechnic University that were honored by the presence of R. Demirtschyan, who encouraged the Polytechnic University student population with her speeches and advice. Long before that, Mrs. Demirtschyan also delivered lectures at Polytechnic University and showed high human qualities to her students and her colleagues still remember all those advice and counsels.
On behalf of the teaching staff of the Polytechnic University and personally me, I express our condolences to Demirtschyan family, relatives and we share their big sorrow.
