The only thing that stays the same is change. If there ever was a believer in this statement, it’s Los Alamos Schools Assistant Superintendent Kate Thomas.
Born and raised in Herndon, Va., Thomas will tell you that she’s a Virginian through and through. Her father, grandfather and great-grandfather ran the only grain mill in Fairfax County, Va.
“There were 360 farms and only one grain mill,” she said. Herndon got its first grocery store when she was 10 and the first stoplight in town when she was 21.
Having been raised in a rural environment, Thomas came to enjoy life in the country. She went through the Fairfax County School system and continued on to college at the George Mason College of the University of Virginia, where she received her bachelor’s degree in history.
When she was ready for a change in scenery, she went to Maryland, where she attended graduate school at the University of Maryland. At this point, she decided that she wanted to teach.
“The area where I grew up had completely changed in the ’60s. I graduated from college in 1969. The North Virginia area became built up, and everything was paved over. I needed a place that was more rural to raise my children,” Thomas said.
