Dolores Evans

Dolores Evans was a long-time member of the Lamplighter community, having been affiliated with the School for more than six decades. She joined The Lamplighter School as a staff member in 1967 and worked at the School until her retirement in 2001. Throughout her 34-year tenure at the School, Dolores did any and every job that was needed. She was the bookkeeper, secretary, receptionist, and eventually served as Lamplighter’s first Director of Admission, a position she held for 25 years. In 2002, the Dolores Evans Speaker Series was established in her honor, and she regularly attended events in her namesake speaker series, sitting proudly in the front row. Dolores was honored by the Alumni Association as a recipient of the Lamplighter Spirit Award in 2022. She was also the grandparent of two Lamplighter alumni, Cole Evans ’04 and Nash Evans ’09. Dolores recently passed away on June 15, 2023 at the age of 92. As a nod to a place that meant so much to her, Dolores’ memorial service was held at The Lamplighter School.
