MSJC to rename child development center after the late Gwendolyn Schlange

Mt. San Jacinto College has scheduled a public ceremony on April 13, 2017 to name the Child Development and Education Center on the San Jacinto Campus after the late Gwendolyn Schlange, a longtime MSJC board member and Hemet/San Jacinto Valley educator.

Ms. Schlange passed away on November 21, 2016. Beloved in the community, her career in education spanned decades in the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley. She dedicated herself for more than 20 years as a trustee on the MSJC Board of Trustees. During her tenure on the board, she was thrilled to read Dr. Seuss books to the children in the centers on March 2, the birthdate Ms. Schlange shared with the late children’s author.

The MSJC Board of Trustees took action in December 2016 to name the center after Ms. Schlange.

The public is invited to attend the naming ceremony that will be held at 2 p.m. at Building 2150 on the San Jacinto Campus, 1499 N. State St. in San Jacinto. For information, call 951-487-3002 or send an email to kgrimes@msjc.edu.
