Robin Bayless

Robin Bayless recently lost her battle with cancer. For the past 15 years at the University of Kansas Life Span Institute at Parsons, Robin served as project assistant for the Kansas Inservice Training System (KITS). KITS is a grant project that provides training to special education providers of children who have disabilities from age birth to 5. She was the editor of the KITS newsletter; the go-to person if you wanted your materials to look great; and is given credit by many for having kept KITS running smoothly. She often said she enjoyed her work and considered the people she worked with family. She will be missed by her many colleagues, friends, and family who were touched by her work, her humor, and her love for others.
