Lorly Schik began teaching kindergarten in the 1940s.
She was loved by countless children throughout her long career in the Perham School District of Minnesota. She was an amazing teacher with a heart of gold. By the time she retired in 1989, she had seen thousands of faces — and could remember every single one.
To celebrate her retirement, Mrs. Schik and her husband planned to take a trip across the country. But before they could hit the road, her husband died unexpectedly. At age 90, she had to make the tough decision to move into an assisted living complex. She had never considered what life without her soulmate would look like, and as you can imagine, it was not easy. Life was suddenly very much different from anything she’d pictured for herself after retirement.
But one day, Lorly was very pleasantly surprised as she tuned into the local news channel in St. Paul, Minnesota, KARE 11 Sunrise.
“When I first saw him, I could hardly believe it!”
One of the news anchors struck her immediately. It was a former student of hers! She remembered that keen face from all those years ago!
What follows is a heartwarming reunion between a grown-up student and his favorite kindergarten teacher.
