Teachers and students at Aspen’s Middle School are still adjusting to life without Kellie Schenck. She passed away on May 20th, at the age of 46, after a long battle with cancer. Schenck taught fifth grade for more than twenty years, inspiring a legion of students and fellow teachers. On Sunday, family and friends are holding a community celebration in her memory at the Benedict Music tent in Aspen. Principal Craig Rogers was a friend and colleague from the early years, and spoke with Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher.
