Natalie Osburn took the helm as Gladstone High School principal this year, while Don Brown is the new leader at the Gladstone Center for Family & Community, which houses kindergarten classes and social services.

Osburn replaced Stu Evans, who retired in June after serving 13 years as principal to spend more time with his family as he battles cancer (“Community ‘rock’ Evans moves on,” May 1). Patti Alexander, who served as interim principal after Evans’ retirement, will continue as GHS vice principal.

With a doctorate in education from Lewis & Clark College, Osburn taught and coached at Central Catholic, Marshall and David Douglas high schools. In the David Douglas School District, she also served as assistant superintendent, and as principal and vice principal at Alice Ott Middle School.

Holding a doctorate in education from the University of Oregon, Brown also serves as the Gladstone School District’s director of curriculum and assessment. His education experience includes teaching music and fifth grade, as well as a variety of administrative roles with the Beaverton, Eugene, Springfield and Oregon City school districts. He serves as a volunteer solar-system ambassador for NASA.

“Natalie brings a commitment to the success of every student, and Don is dedicated to supporting families to ensure the success of each child,” said Superintendent Bob Stewart. “I am delighted to have these leaders join our team.”
