Gwen Hiebert Schroth of Celeste, Texas, will share her story Friday at Lifelong Learning at Tabor College.
She grew up as a missionary’s child in rural India during the 1940s when that country was fighting for independence from Great Britain. She will talk about her family’s traumatic wartime experiences and subsequent return to the United States.
Schroth is a retired public school administrator and professor with Texas A&M University. She is the daughter of J.N.C. and Anna Hiebert. Her father served as president of Tabor College during the 1950s after their return to the states.
Lifelong Learning sessions begin at 9:45 a.m. every Friday in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center. The fee is $4 per session or $15 per semester. An optional discounted lunch is available afterwards at the cafeteria.
