Earlier this month, the World Lebanese Cultural Union profiled Akram Khater for the Lebanese Heritage spotlight. Founded in 1960, WLCU is an international, secular, non-denominational, non-profit organization sponsored by the Government of Lebanon but working independently in cooperation with Lebanese emigrants abroad, representing the Lebanese Diaspora in the world.
Dr. Khater has made Raleigh, NC his second home for over 20 years. His passion for teaching as well as his commitment and knowledge of cultural issues have captured the attention and respect of his colleagues in the US and Lebanon.
We, as a community are fortunate to have such a gifted, dynamic and dedicated Lebanese who continues to inspire and motivate us to represent Lebanon in the most positive light and to educate and capture the imagination at large.
