Blessings to you, Legacy Family,

It is my honor and privilege to serve you as Elementary Principal this year. My name is Kelly Herr and I have been in Education for twenty-one years. I received my Bachelor of Science and teaching certificate in Kinesiology from Lamar University. I have been married to Jefferey Herr for 29 years, and we have 3 beautiful children, Lain (28), Maddie (24), and John (22). 

Long before I taught at Legacy and my children attended school here, I loved this school. My dad, John Lord, was part of the vision that built Cathedral Christian School back in 1978, and I was one of the first students to attend. My heart has belonged to Legacy for decades.

My teaching career began in 2000 when I taught Bible, Health, and P. E. and also coached for Cathedral Christian High School. In 2002 I moved to the elementary school to teach P. E. and be on campus where my own children attended school. There I became chapel leader for six years. I knew then that God was calling me to leadership, but it was not His timing.  

My career took several turns over the next years. I taught at Vista Charter school, was Director at Chick-fil-a and Children’s Pastor at Noel Methodist Church in Shreveport, and I taught and coached at West Hardin and the Ehrhart School. During this time away, my heart stayed centered at Legacy. My own children attended Cathedral and Legacy where they grew spiritually, academically, and athletically. Lain and Maddie both graduated from Legacy. In 2019, following God’s voice, I registered to earn my Master’s of Education/Administration from Lamar University with the desire to return to Legacy as

Principal. In 2020 I graduated during Covid, and I prayed.

I believe with my whole heart that God has prepared me to help lead Legacy to the destiny God has prepared for us. I wholeheartedly believe in Christian Education and am humbled by this opportunity. I will seek Him and the wisdom of those around me to direct each student’s growth toward the unique potential God has for them. I am so excited to see what God has in store for us. “With God, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26


The Lord is with you Mighty Warrior!
