Anderson leaves his mark on Los Alamos

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Expressions of appreciation for retiring Los Alamos Public Schools Superintendent James Anderson have poured into the Monitor from colleagues, community members, civic officials, business leaders and members of New Mexico’s Congressional delegation.

“Our town has been blessed to have Jim Anderson all these years,” said business leader Roger Waterman. “We have a lot of problems in this town but the quality of education is not one of them and that doesn’t happen by accident.

“It takes a lot of people and strong leadership at the top. I think the school system and the medical center are amongst the last two benefits left in this town that attract new families to move here and Jim is a big reason for this. He has high morals and a high committment to quality products. I think he’s a very talented man.

“I wish I was as good at what I do as Jim is wonderful at what he does. He has been on the board of the Family YMCA for 10 years and contributed so much to our youth. I’m sorry to see him go but happy he’s leaving on such a high note. I love the man.”

July 31 is Anderson’s official retirement date and will actually leave his post June 14, after 14 years on the job.
