Jeremy Kane serves on several non-profit boards and has presented around the country on building public-private partnerships, including at the TedX Nashville conference.  Kane also helped found LEAD Academy, one of Tennessee’s highest performing schools and the only public school in Nashville to graduate 100 percent of its seniors and have them all accepted to a four-year college.

As a South Nashville native, Kane spent his childhood volunteering at the summer basketball league his father started and chasing his dream of being an Olympic swimmer while swimming at the Nashville Aquatic Club.

He went to Stanford University on a swimming scholarship and began volunteering at schools around the area.  His experience there and later, while teaching in Nashville and completing his Masters in Public Policy at Vanderbilt University, helped him develop plans for LEAD Academy in 2006.

In 2012 Kane partnered with over 100 community government, non-profit and business leaders to launch Nashville Commits, a commitment through the Clinton Global Initiative to triple the number of low-income college graduates in Nashville by 2020.
