Kurt Steinhaus, recently selected as the new director of the Community Programs Office (CPO) at Los Alamos National Laboratory, recalled delivering newspapers for the Monitor as a young boy.
“I had to deliver two papers to get a cent,” he said, laughing.
In an Aug. 9, 1966, photograph published in the Monitor, he is featured organizing a neighborhood carnival – good training for his new position, he joked.
Steinhaus, 54, graduated from Los Alamos High School in 1972. He plays French horn and said music and computers have always been a big part of his life. After college he taught both subjects for 11 years in Alamogordo.
During that time, Steinhaus earned two master’s degrees, one in computer science from the University of Oregon and the other in music from Eastern New Mexico University.
He went on to earn a Ph.D. in educational leadership and organizational learning from the University of New Mexico.
Along with his educational background, Steinhaus brings extensive work experience to his new position. After teaching for more than a decade, he went to work for 11 years in the Public Education Department in Santa Fe, where he earned eight promotions.
