With “a mixture of sadness and excitement” Steve Kadilak, principal of Auburn Middle School since August 2008, has announced his retirement effective January 2, 2018. “I have enjoyed a fulfilling career as an educator in Fauquier County for 23 years,” Kadilak said. “As many peo-ple know, I joke about having a ‘middle school mind’ and truly this has enabled me to appreciate and share a special connection with our students throughout that time.” Kadilak has been at Auburn since the school first opened its doors to students in the fall of 2004 – first as assis-tant principal for four years and then as principal for just shy of a decade.
