Graves County High School is excited to welcome Lance Gregory to its administrative team as assistant principal.
Mr. Gregory enters his 23rd year in education, allowing for a vast amount of experience to assist him in his new role. He has served as a special education teacher at both the elementary and high school levels and taught high school social studies. In past years, Mr. Gregory has served as the district’s Home Health coordinator. Most recently, Mr. Gregory has held the position of In-School Detention coordinator and athletic director at Graves County Middle School.
A Class of 1995 graduate of Logan County High School, Mr. Gregory earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Union College, specializing in social studies and special education. He then received a Master’s Degree in Education Administration from the University of the Cumberlands in 2009.
Eagle Football was the original draw for Gregory to Graves County High School in 2009 when he was hired as the head football coach, which he served until 2018. Mr. Gregory and his family have been a valued part of the school district and community since that time. His wife, Alison, is a former principal working now for the Kentucky Department of Education. Their children, Kaylee Jo (senior) and Kaden (sophomore), are students at Graves County High School. They participate in various sports and organizations, including the State Champion Coed Cheerleading Team. Kaden follows in his father’s footsteps with a love for football as a member of that team also.
“I am incredibly excited to continue growing as an educator and learning from Ms. Throgmorton and the teachers and staff at Graves County High School. I hope to add value to those I work alongside as well as our students and their families,” said Lance Gregory.
“Lance Gregory joins our team with a wide variety of experience. His talent in both the classroom as well as in student discipline will allow him to round out our amazing leadership team at GCHS. Mr. Gregory works seamlessly with parents, students, and staff to ensure we communicate our expectations both academically and socially. He will also work with teachers to perfect their classroom craft and continue to build strong CTE programs. I look forward to working with Mr. Gregory and doing great things at GCHS,” states Graves County High School Principal Janet Throgmorton.
