Pathfinder dedicates Greta’s Reading Corner

Posted: Friday, May 7, 2021

Pathfinder Services held a dedication ceremony for Greta’s Reading Corner this morning at 10 a.m. at Kids Kampus, located at 435 Campus Street in Huntington.

Greta Schenkel was 3-years-old when she attended Village School in a pre-school class for children with disabilities. Greta continued to be involved in and served by Pathfinder Services until she passed away at the age of 47 this past August.

One of Greta’s greatest loves was being a ‘professional’ volunteer at Kids Kampus. During her 20+ years of volunteering, Greta would sit on the floor with the kids and read to them every day. She loved the children and they loved her!

Following her death, memorials came in to Pathfinder Services in honor of Greta. In consultation with Greta’s family, it was decided to create Greta’s Reading Corner in each of the 15 classrooms on the campus. Each room now has child-sized furniture, a bookshelf, and a plaque in honor of Greta in one corner of the room.

Greta’s parents, Kent and Sally Schenkel, will be on hand for the dedication and donate a very special book to each room. The book is titled “To Let You No: It’s Okay to be Different” and was written by Sally about Greta’s life.

The media is invited to cover this very special dedication.
