A ceremony to celebrate the investiture of Madame Taghrid Abou Hassan as Knight into the Order of Academic Palms of France was held on May 23rd.
One of the oldest civil awards in existence, the decoration was first created by Napoleon to honour members of the French Imperial University. It was re-instituted in 1955 by René Coty, the President of France. Initially awarded only to French professors, it now pays homage to French nationals as well as foreigners who have made a significant contribution to the diffusion of the French culture around the world.
