Assistant principal Mar’Shauwn Grays has worked in place of former assistant principal David True since the start of the school year. Grays looks over students with last names A-C and has transitioned smoothly into his new position.  

Entering his eighth year in education and third year in the triad, Grays was a former coach who got the chance to work as an assistant principal. Following Grays’ transition, he has pushed to strengthen his relationship with not only the students, but his fellow staff members as well.

“I knew some of the staff already, and I knew the admin team, so the transition was easy,” Grays said. “I’m a friendly guy, so that transition was good, but there’s so many teachers here that I haven’t gotten to meet everybody. I’m looking forward to getting to know them over the course of the year.” 

As a new assistant principal, Grays works with students at main campus. Grays shows the potential students hold within themselves by recommending them different career pathways and creating a plan for students to have after graduation. With Grays’ position, he gives students like junior Gracie Thornton insight on how to always push forward. 

“He’s very caring, and he is always there for you when you need him,” Thornton said. “He always pushes you to be the best.”

In addition to making friends with his faculty, Grays makes it known that students can be their authentic selves around him. 

“Everybody gets to start over clean with me,” Grays said. “You can reinvent yourself if you want to with me. If you are some bad student with a long history, none of that matters to me. You can be whoever you want to be.” 

Grays provides mentorship for his students by assisting them in their academics, offering advice on grade improvement and gives students a support system to fall back on.  

“He’s a great person, we need him at our school,” senior A’muryon Savannah said. “He does his job well.”
