In Henry Schwenk’s seven years as a resident of Vi at The Glen, he’s left an indelible mark on the community as their trivia master for nearly the same length of time.
He got into the game by accident while dining with friend and fellow resident Leah Grant, who was helping the Lifestyle Department plan resident-focused events. Leah was coming up short on ideas, so she enlisted Henry to help. The first possibility to pop into his head? Trivia. Before he knew it, Leah had deputized him as the community’s trivia master.
For brain bending or bragging rights
Inspired by his own research, the interests of his fellow residents and a level of precision befitting a former engineer, Henry has devised more than 2,000 questions that are fine-tuned to foster a fun environment and a perfect level of challenge. The results have been undeniable: Trivia nights regularly packed Glen Hall before the pandemic.
“You’ll find that if you put your mind to work, you can come up with some amazing things,” Henry said.
A “new lease on life”
Moving to Vi at The Glen didn’t just lead to Henry’s prolific career as a quizmaster. He says it gave him a “new lease on life,” a refreshing way to fight boredom—and an opportunity to start a new chapter among friends.
