Kay Osborn Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

Kay Osborn, who trains the next generation of teachers for the APS-UNM Partnership Program in Mental Retardation and Severe Disabilities, was honored with a lifetime achievement award by Goodwill Industries of New Mexico. Osborn was one of five individuals recognized with Goodwill’s Edgar Awards at the Celebration of Good Will dinner on March 27.

The awards are named after Edgar Helms, founder of Goodwill Industries in 1906 in Boston, and recognize outstanding New Mexicans in the field of human services.

Osborn began teaching students with severe disabilities in Oklahoma before moving to Farmington, where she continued to teach. She also started a Special Olympics program for San Juan County and served on the state board of New Mexico Special Olympics after moving to Albuquerque and earning a master’s degree in special education.

Osborn has developed a number of educational materials that have been published by Edmark Publications. She received the Crystal Apple Award from former Gov. Gary Johnson in 2002, and now trains the next generation of teachers.
