DEATH OF KHS TEACHER JACK HURT:   Former KHS teacher Jack Hurt died at age 93 on October 20, 2020, at Good Samaritan Society - St. John's senior living center in Kearney.  Mr. Hurt taught Accounting, Business Law, and Typing at Kearney High School for 31 years from 1958 until his retirement in 1989.  Throughout his teaching career, he worked summers as an inspector for DeKalb Corporation.  Graveside services are scheduled at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, October 30, 2020, at Kearney Cemetery.  No visitation will be held.  Memorials are suggested to the Kearney Area Animal Shelter.  Mr. Hurt's obituary and photo is available online at  KHS 1967 students of Mr. Hurt can login to our website and post their memories of Mr. Hurt on our "What's New" webpage.

DEATH OF JIM LANE:  Our KHS1967 classmate Jim Lane died on Saturday, September 12, 2020, in Fort Collins, Colorado, where he had moved in 2011 after his retirement.  Jim was born on July 27, 1949, in Kearney, the third of four children of Dr. Dean and Frances Lane.  Survivors include his sister, Linda Lane-Hamilton of Williamsburg, Virginia; Robert Alan Lane of Omaha; and sister Nancy Lee Lane of Kearney. 

Jim graduated from Kearney High School as Valedictorian, an honor he shared with classmates Susan Houchin and Dick Oliver.  Because then-Principal Gerald Brummer decided not to recognize three Co-Valedictorians, current Principal Dr. Jay Dostal agreed to recognize Jim, Sue, and Dick during our 50th Class Reunion in 2017.  (To view the photo, click the link for "50th Reunion in 2017".)

After graduating from KHS, Jim attended Northwestern University, concentrating in biomedical engineering and biology, then graduated from Macalester College where he was selected to Phi Beta Kappa and was a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship.  He completed his Ph.D. at The John Hopkins University School of Medicine studying how primates' brains process vision.  He worked 11 years for HRB Systems then co-founded the Signal Technology Program of SRI International until his retirement in 2011.  An avid reader about neuroscience and computer engineering, Jim appreciated fine art and chamber music.
