Monahan Foundation members Kelly Monahan Owens, Jeremy Woodward, Dale Crane, Mel Keeler, Cooper Hand (Keeler’s son) and Marshall Crane gave Bishop Brady music director Jason Lane a big check.
During most school assemblies, Bishop Brady music director Jason Lane sits quietly and listens.
That’s because he’s never usually asked to do much of anything. But last Monday’s school-wide meeting took a turn Lane never expected. Marshall Crane, a 1998 graduate of Brady, was there speaking about the Frank Monahan Foundation when all of a sudden he asked Lane to join him on the floor named for the late Bishop Brady basketball coach.
So Lane walked in front of the school and instead of being asked to give an impromptu speech about the state of the music program or reciting the alphabet backwards, he was handed one of those giant checks, like one of those cool game show oversized checks, for $3,000 to help fund new keyboards for his foundations of music class.
