Dr. Wayne McEntire, Administrator
I count myself blessed to be at King’s Academy and I know that it is a divine appointment for such a time as this.  I began my journey at the age of 28 teaching Bible to high school students in Houston. My wife and I homeschooled our older children while living in Gainesville, Texas, and found it to be a family-friendly alternative to conventional schooling. While living in Gainesville, I heard about the University-model school, but we were not at a point in our family life to launch a school. Our older children attended a five-day Christian school where I was principal.  Now, with our two youngest children, we are able to have the advantages of a UMS school.

In addition to serving as a teacher and principal, I have also pastored and worked in other church staff positions over the years.  My degrees are in theology and religious education from Louisiana College, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. My wife, Kyla, and I have been married for 29 years and have five children and one grandchild.

Erin Baggs, Director of Development
I have been at KACS for 14 years, both at the administrative level and as a parent.  God has birthed this model in my heart.  I am passionate about students knowing their identity in Christ and encouraging families to be intentional with the time God has given them with their children.  Prior to KACS, I worked in Arlington ISD in personnel.  I have no greater joy than to hear that our students are walking in the truth! 3 John 1:4. 

Vickie Williams, Director of Upper Campus Curriculum & Instruction and Academic Advisor
I am teaching Upper Campus sciences, and serve as the Dean of Curriculum & Instruction and Academic Adviser. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio, and I am beginning my 34 year of teaching, 24 of which have been in the Christian school setting.  I have served in many capacities, but most of my teaching experience is in the math and science classrooms. 

Joan Colwell, Director of Lower Campus Curriculum and Instruction
I have a B.S. degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Guidance and Counseling. I have 40+ years experience as a classroom teacher, counselor, curriculum director, and principal.  I enjoy partnering with the KACS teachers and parents to provide a quality Christian education that prepares our students for a productive, God-centered future.   

Kristen Springer, Director of Athletics
I have been involved in athletic administration and/or coaching since 2013. I have a passion and vision for an athletic program that develops student-athletes, not only in their sport but in their walk with Christ as well. At King’s Academy our mission is to develop Championship Character in our athletes which will help to prepare them for life. I am blessed to work with staff and coaches who share the same mission and vison! Go Knights!
