Learning to learn and life learning is important to Dr. Lane.

Following this achievement, he attained a Master of Science in educational leadership from Oklahoma State University in 2007, a land grant university like WSU. He subsequently gained a Doctor of Education in organizational change and leadership from the University of Southern California in 2018. His mantra is: Learn. Serve. Lead.

Within the coming years, Dr. Lane intends to maintain his university affiliation, cherishing the fulfilling work and close-knit relationships with colleagues that make the university feel like an extended family.

As the product of first generation college graduates that worked years to attain to their professional degrees while raising a family, Dr. Lane is also a dedicated single father of a Cherokee citizen.
