Mr. Allen was born in Reno, NV and moved to Fallon in 2006 to open and run a specialized auto repair shop. Andy was married in 2013 and started a family. Andy and his wife Brook needed to start looking at school options for their children. They realized Logos was by far the best option for them and what they thought was a priority for how they wanted their children to be taught and raised.

Andy was asked to join the board in 2017. Andy says “ I was happy to serve in that capacity and have been happy to be a part of this great school and do my best to make decisions based on the biblical values that I am constantly growing in as I walk with the Lord in my life as a Christian. I believe that if we follow the path God has shown us in his word, The Bible, this school will be successful in honoring God and teaching families who they are, what they were created for, who they were created by and what their purpose in this life is, all while receiving a classical education from teachers and staff who work to reflect the love of Christ.

While there are always challenges, I am honored and blessed to be a part of this school and serve with the people I get to serve with.”

We lost my husband and 3 step-daughters in an airplane crash. My two daughters and I made it through a few tough years only by God’s grace and blessings.  After the dust settled, I opened His Inspirations Christian Books and Gifts in November of 2010”.
