Alumni Spotlight Racy Kane (’93)

Mrs. Racy Kane (‘93) currently serves at Prosper ISD. She has been an active leader in education for nearly 30 years, from Waskom, to Hallsville, onto Ferris, and now Prosper. Mrs. Kane has held several roles in the classroom and campus administrator responsibilities, serving on multiple local, state, and national committees.  She shares that she is now in her “dream job as the Director of Academic Competition overseeing elementary, middle, and high school UIL Academics, Speech and Debate, Mock Trial, Spelling Bee and a host of Club Academic teams throughout the growing district of almost 30,000 students.” 

When speaking with her about why she chose ETBU, she stated, “At the time, there were not many schools offering a Pre-law degree where you could study directly with active attorneys, and ETBU had one. Working directly with attorneys and learning about practicing law as an undergrad, I learned so much, and it helped me get a great score on the LSAT because I was DOING the work while learning it.” Though her career has not unfolded in the way she had originally planned, God has provided perfectly in unexpected ways. 

“My high school alma mater reached out to me, offering to hire me to start a speech program and teach theatre. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse,” said Mrs. Kane.  Realizing the joy she finds in education, she says, “I knew that this is what God had intended for me despite my plans. It truly is amazing what happens when we talk and listen to Him and go where He leads us.”

Reflecting on the lasting impact of ETBU faculty, she shares, “Dr. Rester was an amazing educator with a commitment to growing competent communicators. When I was teaching, much of my curriculum was garnered from content and activities learned in her class.”

Mrs. Kane has maintained many of her ETBU friendships. “I have stayed in touch with my roommate and closest friends. We were at each other’s weddings, and I recently got to attend the wedding of another dear ETBU friend to the man of her dreams. I am friends with several peers on Facebook and other social media sites where we still connect, and I currently work with another classmate where we have been together for the past 12 years now.”

Mrs. Kane shares that even with a heavy course load and part-time jobs, she found time as a university student to develop lasting friendships and shared memories … like “riding down Stagecoach Road looking for spectators and praying while we did it.”
