Helping Others Reach Their Potential
Kassie Lane was born and raised in Plainview. She graduated from Plainview High School in 2007 and was able to be a concurrent student at Wayland while attending high school.
“Being a Plainview resident, opened the opportunity to be a part of the PEP Program which was not only an amazing opportunity, but a blessing that allowed me to begin my educational journey with Wayland in August of 2007 as full time student.”
Lane graduated in May of 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and a minor in Business Administration. Shortly after graduating she married her high school sweetheart Nicholas.
In February of 2012 Lane returned to Wayland to continue her education and enrolled in the MAM program and graduated in May of 2013 with a Master of Arts in Management degree with a specialization in Health Care Administration. However, her involvement with Wayland didn’t end there.
“After completing my Masters, I was blessed with the opportunity to become an adjunct professor for the School of Business in August of 2013. I was an adjunct professor through the summer of 2017 and that summer I was blessed with the opportunity to become a full time faculty member by accepting the position of Assistant Professor of Business Administration.”
Lane added that Wayland is a university that makes you feel like you are part of a big family not just as a student, but as an employee as well.
“When I worked here as a student worker during my bachelors every professor I had always pushed me to strive for more and because of them I am where I am today. Teaching at Wayland allows for me to help students, the way my professors helped me. It allows me to give back and help others reach their potential and gain an education to enter the workforce prepared and ready to make a difference.”
Lane also said that she plans to earn her PhD in December 2020. Outside of school and work she enjoys helping her husband farm and ranch with her three boys, Kaiden age 6, Karsen age 4 and Kanon age 2.
