This month we are preparing to say goodbye to Ms. Jane, Director of Kava Kids, who is retiring from our organization after 8 dedicated years of service. She is leaving behind large shoes to fill and a rich legacy of making a difference. Ms. Jane was born and raised in Greenville, TX, so it is no surprise that is where she ended up after a 30 year long career as a school teacher. She attended Sam Houston State University and received her Master’s degree from University of North Texas. The majority of Ms. Jane’s teaching career took place in Irving, TX where she taught 4th, 5th and 6th graders. A mother of two girls, a lover of sports, especially football (Go Denver Broncos), and a women with a passion and drive for children, are just a few ways to describe. Ms. Jane, you are going to be missed. From everyone at The Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Texas, we wish you the very best in your future endeavours, and hope you visit often!
