Isaac Shamoon

Education and Fine Arts Director

Born in Chicago on August 23th, 1989. Isaac has currently taken position at ACSSM as the Minister of Education of Fine Arts.  I have not been with ACSSM from the beginning but I have been in it from pretty early on.  I have helped with events thrown by ACSSM such as Assyrian Martyrs day, college night, and other fun and social outings and events.  Ultimately, being the Minister of education I am most excited about the fine arts and getting our youth involved and educated within the fine arts.  It’s 2008 and these days without an education it doesn’t matter who you are you don’t have a good chance of getting somewhere.  Our goal is to enhance the numbers of our youth being educated.
