War in the time of peace for Shiloh Scheib

For Gerald Scheib
, retirement meant going to war.

Sort of.

Scheib gave up full time teaching in 2001. And although he continues to teach art classes at Mission College as an adjunct instructor, he found himself with a lot of extra time after retirement…enough time to re-live history.

Retirement may be the end of a career. But quite often, it's the start of something new. For Gerald Scheib (above left), it meant a chance to experience history. For Alice Lal, leaving the child development center after 29 years opens the door for a return to her native India.

Start a child center here… launch a college in India – that’s Alice for you!

Alice Lal remembers that day in 1975 as if it were yesterday.

She had been appointed director of the child development center at the brand new Mission College and her first task was to find a site for the center.
