Nada Sarduk receives French Merit and May Chidiac Minerva Prize

On the occasion, Foucher commended Sardouk’s career life in high school and university teaching to educational inspection up to her current responsibility she holds since 2002. Praising her ideal civil service, Foucher described Sardouk as a dedicated ambassador of Francophonie based on her educational upbringing and her professional personality that are consistent with the French educational legacy in Lebanon. On the other hand, the Italian Ambassador to Lebanon, Massimo Marotti, awarded the founder of May Chidiac Foundation MCF, Dr. May Chidiac, Italy’s Anna Maria Mammoliti Minerva Prize for human and civil rights for the year 2017.
