Welcome to 'King's Corner'

Karen King in her cornerBeloved Parkway OASIS Tutor Karen King  had a shrine of sorts dedicated to her at Shenandoah Valley Elementary School recently.

“King’s Corner,” as the shrine is called, is actually a private corner in the school where King can tutor students. It contains colorful maps, letters, walls, books and other teaching aids that engage students.

Phyllis Tirmenstein, a Parkway citizen, donated $5,000 through the Greater St. Louis Community Foundation to make King’s Corner possible. Shenandoah Valley Principal Carrie Luttrell hand-picked most of the colorful furnishings for King’s Corner.

Parkway OASIS tutors and administrators turned out for the dedication honoring King and unveiling King’s Corner recently.

King and her corner are powerful reminders of the strength and success of Parkway OASIS, an intergenerational tutoring program.
