Case Study: Legacy Early College

Unlocking Potential with CliftonStrengths


Legacy Early College was established with the goal of helping these underserved scholars not only graduate high school, but also become, in most cases, first generation college graduates. This vision is built upon a three-pillar model of academic rigor, daily physical education, and superior nutrition — supporting the students’ thriving in mind and body.


When LaCheryl Coleman assumed leadership of Legacy’s high school in 2019, LEC was 3 points away from being an “F-rated” school. Knowing about Traci’s work with teams, especially around culture, LaCheryl called Traci and expressed her desire to invest in cultural repair and in understanding her faculty better.


Together, Traci and LaCheryl decided that CliftonStrengths might be a good addition to address the needs of the LEC team — and they were right!


This will be the sixth year Traci will work with the LEC teams. LaCheryl commented on Traci’s gift for making the content fresh and relevant for her staff year after year.
