Kathi Trask

Kathi TraskMary Kathleen "Kathi" Trask earned a BS in Elementary Education from New Mexico State University in 1970 and Masters in Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood at Eastern New Mexico University in 1979. She taught kindergarten in Clovis, New Mexico for 30 years before retiring in 2001. Kathi and her husband, Richard Trask Jr., have been active members of Westminster Presbyterian Church for 25 years. They have a daughter, son and one grandson.

Since retirement Kathi has become interested in genealogy and was honored to find that Horace and Mary Holley were among her ancestors. Horace Brand Hening, Kathi's paternal grandfather, inherited his great-great grandmother Mary Austin Holley's talent of writing and observation and her spirit of adventure. He came to the New Mexico territory in 1902 as a young news reporter and became Secretary of Immigration. He wrote a book and pamphlets advertising for settlement in New Mexico—much in the way Mary Holley had promoted Texas a century earlier!
