John Legg, his wife, Karen, and three daughters – Eva, Lizzie, and Khylei – happily call Colorado Springs, Colorado home. Originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia, John attended his first TeenPact class in 1995 and then served as a staffer and eventually as a Program Director in 2000. Formerly an incredibly shy student, John struggled with public speaking for many years. Through his experiences at TeenPact, he was empowered to step out of his comfort zone – competing in the final round of the inaugural TeenPact Judicial at the Georgia Supreme Court in the 90’s – and beyond – later speaking at his law school graduation to an audience of 5,000. In addition to the State Classes, John helped to create, staff, and direct the TeenPact Judicial program which continues to this day. He loves seeing students rise to meet challenges and the character building that happens in the process.
