Marni Kaner was RISD’s biggest advocate. She was a wife and a mother, a teacher and a leader. She was the RISD Council of PTAs president from 2014-16 and also served the state PTA as vice president of membership. She was beloved by all and sadly passed away from breast cancer in September 2020.

On March 4, the city of Dallas will officially name part of the Preston Ridge Trail in Marni’s honor. The RISD community is welcome to join the ribbon cutting that will take place near the trail intersection of Hillcrest Road and Campbell Green Park.
