LAPS says goodbye to LAMS' Kilburn

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

When the group of people you work with and for give you a standing ovation for your efforts, you know your time is well spent.
On Wednesday afternoon a big crowd of parents, students, staff and community members came together to celebrate the efforts of Los Alamos Principal Rex Kilburn and LAMS Registrar Dawn Kilburn, as they end their time with Los Alamos Public Schools.
Rex Kilburn who has spent 27 years in education, 11 of those in Los Alamos, will be returning to Kotzebue, Alaska, to work for a few more years before formally retiring.
LAPS Superintendent Kurt Steinhaus, Assistant Superintendent Gerry Washburn and LAMS Assistant Principal Anna Vargas-Gutierrez all spoke fondly of Kilburn as tears filled the eyes of both friends and family.
“Rex is also genuinely concerned about the well being of all his students and always wanting the best for his staff, students and the community,” said former staff member Claire Swinhoe. “He has a positive, caring approach that is rare in today’s world.”
Wednesday’s celebration took place in Kelly Hall at the Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, where Eskimo Pies and even a Baked Alaska made by parent Rachel Allen were served to the Kilburns’ well-wishers.
