From that day on, the former graduate of YSU Faculty of Russian Philology has been dedicated to her work for 25 years. “This is not just a job, this is a mission”, she said. At the opening of the international conference dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide Memorial, held in 2007, AGMI former director Hayk Demoyan awarded Ms. Yedigaryan with a jubilee gold medal for her many years of dedicated work.

In May 2016 the Speaker of the National Assembly the Republic of Armenia, on behalf of the chairman of the leadership of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia, awarded Ms. Yedigaryan and a number of other AGMI staff members with a letter of gratitude for their contribution in raising international public awareness and recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
