Sharing the Love: A Ketchum Proposal


On Jan. 27, 2018, SCCO Student Grigor Haroutunyan, Class of 2020, asked his girlfriend, Anna Isaghulyan, to be his patient for his final proficiency. She was hesitant to drive from Los Angeles to Anaheim Hills on her birthday, but after some pleading she agreed. Little did she know that Grigor had solicited the assistance of his fellow classmate, Elena Karapetian, SCCO Class of 2020, to surprise Anna with an exam she will never forget. With assistance from his professors, Ketchum Health employees and classmates, Grigor proposed to his girlfriend during her examination. Classmate Elena Karapetian scribed during the exam and helped Grigor through the entire proposal. If this isn’t sharing the love, we don’t know what is! 

On behalf of the entire Marshall B. Ketchum University family, congratulations to Grigor and Anna. We were so proud you chose the University Eye Center at Ketchum Health to be the location of one of the most significant events in your lives. We wish you both the very best now and into the future.
