The Faculty of Architecture, Arts and Design (FAAD) at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU) in Lebanon was officially named after a my late son, Ramez G. Chagoury on November 4, 2016, at Issam Fares Hall, following a ceremony that unveiled the permanent memorial plaque of ‘Ramez Gilbert Chagoury.’ Read NDU’s Press Release here.
My son Chris gave a wonderful and touching opening speech.
Ramez may no longer be with us, but the values he believed in, the love he had for this country, the hope he had for a brighter future, those things live on.
Today is a day of celebration, a day to celebrate my brother’s life as well as celebrate the inauguration of this new addition to Notre Dame University. I am sure I speak on behalf of all of you in thanking my parents, Gilbert and Rose-Marie Chagoury for their incredibly generous contribution.
Thanks to all the family and friends that joined us on this special occasion. May go bless you all.
