The founder and director of The Rare Academy, Ena Logan, has had a passion for children and the arts for as long as she can remember. As a Richmond native she grew up participating in theatre, modeling, piano lessons, and dance. She had a strong spiritual upbringing in giving back to her community and the importance of education by her mother, who has been an educator for over 30 years and a lifetime of servanthood. During her matriculation at Howard University, God gave Ena a vision to impact girls by teaching them how to embrace the young lady who God created them to be. Following graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, she has been motivated even the more to make a difference in the lives of girls; as she has served as a therapeutic day treatment specialist, in-home counselor, instructional assistant, and behavior interventionist. Ena is currently enrolled at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Counselor Education program in pursuit of a master's degree in School Counseling.
Ena has encountered many girls who have not been afforded the opportunity to have diverse experiences in culture or the arts. It is Ena’s life goal to open the door of possibilities to girls who never knew that they existed and motivating them to strive for excellence in everything that they do. Ena is beyond thankful for her greatest gift, her husband, JT Logan. They are a dynamic team and together are the owners of Four Deep Multimedia LLC., a full range advertising and marketing agency.
