Legacy Christian Academy is pleased to announce that Nicole Franks has joined the Board of Trustees. Mrs. Franks is the principal owner of The Strategy Workshop, a product and marketing management consulting firm that influences the direction of education in both the United States and abroad. A native New Yorker, Mrs. Franks graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies. She holds an MEd in reading and literacy from Benedictine University and earned her certification as a K–12 reading specialist.
Mrs. Franks and her husband, Patrick, have two daughters: Siena is in the Spanish Immersion Program at Legacy (Class of ’32), and Sloane is a 2-year-old future Eagle. The couple chose LCA, says Mrs. Franks, for the supportive community and its servant leadership value. “It’s through service that we exemplify Christ’s work,” she says.
“I’m most thankful to share my experience and support the Legacy community as a Trustee,” she says.” LCA has a proud history and an amazing future as the premier Pre-K–12 Christian school in Frisco, which as a covenant community we get to shape. It’s exciting to think about what a diploma from LCA will mean for students twenty years from now.”
Mrs. Franks has been involved in education for more than two decades. Though her journey initially started in the classroom, she quickly transitioned to curriculum planning and was even awarded Curriculum Specialist of the Year in 2011. With her visionary skills, she soon carved out a niche for herself in product management and marketing. She has worked with both public and private schools to design and implement infrastructures for digital learning.
Brad Brenneman, chairman of the Board of Trustees, says, “We’re grateful that Nicole has committed to serve LCA as a Trustee. She has significant experience and expertise as an educator and specifically as a curriculum expert working with leading publishers and schools around the world to design and innovate pedagogical methods to improve student learning. Her passion for Christian education and covenant partnership, along with her professional experience and expertise, uniquely equips her to contribute valuable insight and experience to LCA’s Trustees.”
“I’m delighted to welcome Nicole Franks to our Board of Trustees,” says Head of School Bill McGee. “Nicole brings a wealth of knowledge and experience as an educator that will prove valuable to our school as we continue to mature our academic programs. She has been on the cutting edge of innovation in education and I look forward to her lending her wisdom and counsel in this area.”
Mrs. Franks is a volunteer for Frisco Family Services and an instructor for its CHAMPS (Challenging Adult Minds for Personal Success) program. The Franks are members of St. Philips Episcopal Church and say they enjoy all the ways the community makes a positive impact right here in our hometown.
