I'm a Changemaker - Kane Hubbard


Kane Hubbard, recent LSU Graduate

Baton Rouge - On this week’s "I'm a Changemaker" series, we feature Kane Hubbard, recent LSU Graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Leadership and Human Resource Development. Kane is originally from Rayne, Louisianan and is now working as an HR Analyst at CrescentCare, a federally qualified health center in New Orleans. Some of his responsibilities include providing support and maintenance for the Paycom system, conducting New Hire Orientation, advising and counseling employees and leaders, and conducting group and one-on-one Leadership training.

Growing up, some of Kane’s biggest heroes went to LSU and he always wanted to follow in their footsteps. One Saturday, he was able to attend a game in Tiger Stadium to watch his cousin play for the Tiger’s. Seeing Mike and how beautiful the campus was filled him with pride. This made him realize that LSU was the only choice for him. When he was younger, Kane taught swimming lessons, and he always enjoyed helping people learn a new skill and develop their talents to achieve more. That passion, plus the wide variety of post-graduation options available led him to choose the LHRD program.

To Kane, leadership and human resource development is about leading a group of people to do great things, develop their strengths, and come together to be more than just an individual, but a team. By doing so, each person in the group is able to learn from each other and expand on their own knowledge. The HRE degree influenced Kane to be impactful and collaborative by providing him with the skills and development necessary to collaborate with students of different personalities and to be impactful not only in a professional setting but in his community at large.

 “A change-maker is someone who leads by example. You cannot ask the people around you to make changes if you’re not willing to lead from the front”.

For students searching for a degree path, and looking to make a positive impact on their community, Kane would tell them that there’s no better way to learn the skills needed to achieve this goal than a LHRD program. In the world today, not only do you have to drive development, you also have to provide leadership and guidance for your team, says Kane. This degree encompasses both leadership and development, providing the best opportunity to make the maximum impact in your community.

The faculty of the School of Leadership and Human Resource Development is extremely proud of each of our graduates’ great accomplishments. As we move forward into the future, providing the necessary tools to our students, like Kane, will allow them to create a positive difference in people, organizations, and communities globally; to become change-makers in all aspects of life.
