Laboratory schools get new principals, all bring new mission to position

Grambling schools are making a change; three new changes at that. Mr. Ronnie Harrison, Mr. Gregory Williams (aka) “Big Coach”, and Mrs. Regina Gregory. Mr. Ronnie Harrison, principal of Grambling Middle Magnet School, is very excited about the opportunity to work for the university. As a University of Louisiana of Monroe alumni that majored in Health, Physical Education, and English, he is currently a Doctoral Student in Educational Leadership at Louisiana Tech working on his dissertation. His missions for GMMS are to work closely with the state holders and bring parents and the community together to work toward making our students into great citizens academically and socially.

On asking him how he heard about GMMS he said,” Grambling has a mystique image about itself and when the opportunity came along I was glad to pursued it.”

Mr. Gregory Williams, principal of Grambling Laboratory High School, feels privileged to be at GHS over awesome, intelligent students that have such a high level of potential. “Big Coach” is a former student of Alcorn State University that majored in Heath and Physical Education. Mr. Williams also played football four years for the Alcorn State Braves.

When asked how he felt about GHS he responded by saying, ” GHS is a big secret of North.
They are one of the only predominantly black private k-12 Lab schools in the country.”

“Big Coach” is married to Mrs. Eva Williams and has two daughters that are teachers in Marshall, TX. GHS will be playing the Texas Southern Laboratory School this Friday in Robinson Stadium at 7:00 and they are requesting our support so come out and show your “Kitten Pride.”

Mrs. Regina Gregory, principal of Alma J. Brown, attended the University of Texas in Tyler where she acquired her Masters and is currently looking toward working on her PH.D in the Doctoral Education of Administration.

Mrs. Gregory’s missions for AJB are to increase the success rate in academic achievement, parental involvement and to implement more technology during the process.

Gregory and her husband currently reside here in Grambling and they are eager to begin the socializing process with the community.

Mrs. Gregory is happily married and has three remarkably intelligent daughters that support her. Alma J. Brown, GMMS, and GHS will be holding its annual Open House Thursday Sept. 6, 2007 in the Nursing building’s auditorium at 6:30 p.m.

So Grambling students get ready to embark upon a new year with Harrison, Williams, and Gregory!
