My name is Bane Ballou. This is my second year at KCIA and my thirty-fourth year in education. I have a Bachelors of Science Degree in Accounting from UMKC. Before coming to KCIA, I worked for school districts in Belton, Harrisonville, and Independence. I retired as the Director of Finance from the Raytown School District at the end of the 2017-2018 school year. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, with most summer weekends spent at the lake. My husband, Shaun Henry, and I have three great kids between us, Phillip, Kaden, and Jace, plus two amazing grandkids, Preston and Paisley. I am excited to be a part of the KCIA team!
