New KISD Elementary School to be Named After Lifelong Educator
The Killeen ISD Board of Trustees voted to name Elementary school #36, Pat Carney Elementary School, during a regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday.
The new campus on Azura Drive will be named in honor of the late Killeen ISD educator tragically killed in the Luby’s Cafeteria massacre on October 16, 1991.
Patricia "Pat" Brann Kemp Carney was a lifelong educator with over 27 years of experience serving the Killeen Independent School District. Carney was a teacher at Peebles and East Ward Elementary Schools before being promoted to Assistant Principal and Principal of East Ward Elementary School. Staying true to per passion, Carney went on to become the Elementary Curriculum Director for the district where she planned to strengthen the delivery of instruction for all students.
The new campus is part of the 2018 bond and will relieve overcrowding at Fowler Elementary.
