Karinya Chen impacted the lives of all she touched. She was a beloved member of the Kirby Hall community. Her intelligence, charm, kindness, dogged determination, positive outlook, talent, and faith continue to inspire us to reach for our better selves.
Hammers, nails, shingles, and lots and lots of paint transformed Kirby Hall’s front porch into a playhouse production site. Our fifth through ninth grade students joined forces with Austin Habitat for Humanity to create four life-size playhouses for local charities.
