Chris Webb was born in Kansas City, Missouri, but was raised in rural western Kansas. He attended the now defunct Enterprise Academy in Enterprise, Kansas, for high school, and then continued his education at Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska. He began pursuing a major in Communications with a final goal of becoming a journalist, but after serving at Maxwell Academy in Nairobi, Kenya, as a student missionary assistant boys’ dean, Chris decided instead to pursue his real passion—teaching. Within a week of returning to the United States, his major was changed to English Education, and he earned his diploma in that in May of 2009. He is now in the process of acquiring a Masters Degree in Educational Technology from Boise State University.
