Longtime Epps Island Employee Honored with Administrative Wing Dedication
Colleagues and family members of the late Nancy Kaye Mann gathered at Epps Island Elementary on December 3 to dedicate the building’s administrative wing in her honor and to celebrate her lasting legacy of service to the campus, the Klein Forest family of schools, and the district as a whole.
The Mann Family has strong ties to Klein, from raising Klein Forest Golden Eagles to continually serving and devoting their lives to the good of the district.
“Nancy Kaye Mann served the Klein Family for 32 years,” Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “She was hired as the principal’s secretary at Epps Island in 1983 and retired in 2015, serving her entire career at Epps Island. What a remarkable testament to her love of this campus and all the students and faculty who walked through its doors.”
During the dedication, members of the Mann family shared stories from Nancy’s life, showing all of the ways she went above and beyond to care for the students and staff of Epps Island Elementary.
The board unanimously approved the naming of the administrative wing in July 2019.
“Mrs. Mann built relationships with students and entire families throughout her years at Epps Island,” Klein ISD Board of Trustees President Georgan Reitmeier said. “I am thankful for the opportunity to be here today with all of you for this special dedication ceremony.”
