Lisa Romero, a high school secretary from Gallup, New Mexico, was an “incredible loving and sincere friend, mentor and advocate for students,” the Gallup-McKinley County Public Schools interim superintendent said Monday.

District officials confirmed to reporters on Monday that Romero, 48, was among those killed by gunman Stephen Paddock.

“Last night during the mass shooting in Las Vegas we lost one of our staff members,” interim superintendent Mike Hyatt wrote to employees. “Lisa Romero, discipline secretary at Miyamura (High School), was a victim in the shooting. Our prayers go out to her family during this tragic time.”

Survivors included Romero-Muniz’s husband, children and grandchildren, Hyatt said.
