Farzaneh Brothers Give Back
Mohammad and Jalal Farzaneh
The Farzanehs said at a young age their father taught them the importance of education. Their father encouraged all his children to pursue a higher education.
“Our late father believed education not only built a person’s character, but was also crucial to building society,” Mohammad Farzaneh said.
Jalal Farzaneh said he believes mass communication has a lot to do with why we should be educated about other countries and not just our own.
“We have to make sure we are educating our next generation about other cultures,” Jalal Farzaneh said.
Both Farzaneh brothers immigrated to the United States in 1978 and made Oklahoma their home. They graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1981 with bachelors of environmental design. Immediately following graduation the brothers began their own construction business, Home Creations. Today it is Oklahoma’s largest home-building company. In 1984, the brothers returned to OU to earn masters’ degrees in architecture.
The Farzanehs believe in giving back to the Oklahoma community that gave so much to them.
