Audra May

Head Administrator

I was born the oldest daughter in a family of four children. My mother and father were wonderful parents, both of whom love Jesus and demonstrated that on a daily basis. In all that we did and everywhere we went, we were always taught to live our faith and be doers of the word, not just hearers only. My parents lived this out as my father has been a deacon in his local church for over 30 years and my mother, the pastor’s secretary.

Jeana Francis

Chief Operating Officer

My husband and I were born and raised in south Louisiana.  In August of 2006, we transferred to Texas.  This was an extremely difficult move for me having grown up very near and dear to family and friends.  Soon after our move, I began looking for a job to get plugged in and meet new friends.  Ironically, I met Audra May at the ballpark and we instantly became friends.  Hearing of her vision of the school and her learning of my desire to find a job, I interviewed and began working at Legacy in November of 2006.  Legacy is such a blessing to me and has brought so much more than just a job.  It has ignited a passion in me to provide a loving, caring, safe and unique environment for our families and students to attend school, receive a great education and grow in their Christian faith.

Cameron LeBlanc

Chief Financial Officer

My husband and I moved to Texas four years ago from Connecticut and it has been such a blessing for us. Two of our three children were born here and now God has blessed me with an amazing opportunity to serve at Legacy Preparatory! I’ve been married nine years and have three wonderful children – Lily, Caitlin and Luke. Lily and Caitlin will be attending Legacy this coming year.

Amanda Jones

Upper School Principal

Christian education has been a passion of mine for over 15 years. I hold a B.A. from the University of Houston and a M.A. in Christian Education from Southwestern Seminary. Legacy’s passion for quality, Christ-centered education coincides with my own desires to see students grow in their understanding of the love of Christ through the pursuit of excellence in learning, all for the glory of God. My husband Nick and I have been married for fifteen years and have four daughters who attend Legacy. My favorite bible verse is Romans 1:16-17: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.’”

Cassandra Yearwood

Hello! My name is Cassandra Yearwood and I’m excited to serve the Legacy community as the new Upper School Assistant Principal. A little about me…I have been married to my husband, Robert, for 16 years. We have two children, Kayla and Christian, who both attend Legacy in 8th and 10th grade, respectively. We are members of Impact Church of The Woodlands where my husband serves as an associate pastor. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Applied Learning and Development with a mathematics specialization from The University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘em Horns) and my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction-Mathematics Education from The University of Houston-Main Campus. My professional passions are teaching and walking along side other teachers. I love spending time with my family and watching football, basketball, and softball. My favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

Lisa Bontrager

Elementary Principal

I am a native Texan!  I was raised in Canton a small east Texas town of about 3,000 residents until the first of each month when the town grows to over a 100,000 on First Monday Weekend.  I accepted Christ as my savior at Oak Grove Baptist Church when I was nine years old.  My husband and I met at Jerry’s Pizza in Canton through a mutual friend.   On July 3, 1982 we were married at First Baptist Church of Canton where we served faithfully and had two precious children Ashley Bontrager Snell and Brett Bontrager.    After serving at First Baptist for eleven years in lay positions God called our family into ministry.  I was a public school teacher at the time and my husband was employed by Halliburton in Carrollton, Texas.  We followed God’s call to enter seminary in Fort Worth, Texas in 1992.  We have been serving in full time ministry since.
