SAN JACINTO – Mt. San Jacinto College held a public ceremony April 13 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.
Schlange, who died Nov. 21, was 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 center every March 2, the birth date she shared with the late children’s author.
The naming ceremony was held at Building 2150 on the San Jacinto campus, 1499 N. State St. in San Jacinto.
