Kate E. Shaw

Kate dedicated her life to her love of Highland Dancing and to her students. She taught children of all ages, levels and abilities, and never turned away any individual who wanted to learn how to dance. Her students have accomplished many national, as well as international, successes due to her patience, love and skills.

She produced many great dancers, dance teachers, and even champions. She kept the traditions of Scottish heritage alive in our community by instructing those willing to learn. Kate's other accomplishments include over 60 years of teaching Sunday School and over 40 years working with disabled people.  She was on the Board of Managers with the Presbyterian Church, Secretary for the Caledonian Society, Executive Secretary for the I.O.D.E. and Secretary for the Elk's Lodge.
