Legacy Christian Academy is excited to welcome Nick Johnson to the Board of Trustees. Nick is the owner of Lakes Tennis Academy in Frisco, which has been recognized by the USTA as one of the best private clubs and junior tennis programs in America. He has served on the Dallas Professional Tennis Association Board of Directors for 7 years.
Nick is eager to give back to LCA, sharing, “I am incredibly excited to join the Board of Trustees in order to serve a school that has taken such excellent care of my children for the past 13 years.” Nick and his wife Salina have been married for 21 years. They have three children; Blake ’22, Callie ’24, and Addy ’26, who have all attended Legacy since Pre-K. Nick enjoys spending time with his family boating, biking, skiing, and taking his daschund to the weiner dog races! His family has attended Preston Trail Community Church for 14 years.
LCA Board of Trustee Brad Brenemann values Nick’s tenured perspective at LCA:
“We are grateful that Nick has committed to serve LCA as a Trustee! He and his wife Salina are long-time LCA parents who are deeply loved across LCA and have been very devoted to our mission and community. Nick is a man of deep faith in Christ and will bring great vision, perspective, thoughtfulness, creativity, and love for LCA to our Trustees.”
Bill McGee, Head of School, echoes the family’s commitment to and passion for LCA, “I am excited to welcome Nick Johnson to the board of trustees. The Johnsons have been a loyal and active family who love Legacy and reflect the core values of our school. Nick's business acumen will be invaluable to the board as it continues to work to secure the financial future of our beloved institution.”
His devotion to tennis developed at a young age and has remained constant throughout much of his life. After spending thousands of hours training on the court, Nick was offered a tennis scholarship to play at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His excitement to play Division 1 tennis was quashed when he was diagnosed with leukemia during his freshman year. Nick underwent a life-saving bone marrow transplant at Baylor Medical Center and just 30 days later, doctors proclaimed he was cured.
Determined to continue his pursuit of a career in tennis, he moved to the University of North Texas where he earned a degree in Club and Resort Management. He spent 8 years as a tennis pro at Northwood Club in Dallas before making his move to Lakes Tennis Academy.
Nick has served on the Dallas Professional Tennis Association Board of Directors for 7 years. He also works with the Team Connor Foundation for an annual tennis fundraiser to benefit childhood cancer research.
