Former Los Alamos Middle School Assistant Principal Rex Kilburn was selected as the school’s new principal. Kilburn takes over the position vacated by Donna Grim, who is leaving to pursue an advanced degree.
Kilburn previously worked for five years at Pinon Elementary in White Rock, where he taught under the direction of principals James Telles and Megan Lee. For the last two years, he served as the assistant LAMS principal.
Before his arrival in Los Alamos, Kilburn worked in three Alaskan communities, including Skagway, Kake and Sitka. He received his B.A. in Elementary Education at the College of Idaho and his Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Phoenix.
