He pursued a degree in music education at Indiana State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in 1971 and a Master of Science in 1976. Mr. Cain is a certified public school teacher in the state of Indiana and in addition to teaching, he has a rather impressive fossil collection of which he is extremely proud.
