Kathy Kuhlmann, an assistant principal at Woodlawn Middle School in Baton Rouge, died on April 25 after an extended bout with cancer.

Kuhlmann, who was 59, spent her career as a teacher and administrator, working in both East and West Baton Rouge parishes as well as Texas. Before coming to Woodlawn Middle, she was assistant principal at Southeast Middle School.

The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board acknowledged her passing at its May 15 meeting.

Raquel Brown, the school’s band and strings teacher, took over as assistant principal in January, and Briana Anyigbo was appointed in February to take over the job vacated by Brown.
