    Halifax County, NC – September 14, 2020

    Halifax County Schools Names New Executive Director of Human Resources and Operations

    The Halifax County Schools Board of Education approved the appointment of Dr. Gregory E. Monroe for the position of Executive Director of Human Resources & Operations. Dr. Monroe has 22 years of experience in various educational roles. For the last 2 years he has served as the principal of Southeast Collegiate Prep Academy, home of the Mighty Trojans. During his two year tenure, the high school graduation rate increased to a record 84 percent.

    Dr. Monroe started his career in his childhood hometown, Greene County. There, he rose through the ranks serving as a bus driver, teacher, middle school assistant principal, middle school principal, and a director of the Greene County Alternative Education Center. Dr. Monroe earned his Associate in Arts degree from Lenior Community College, Kinston North Carolina. He went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in Education, his Masters in School Administration, as well as his Doctorate in school leadership from East Carolina University, Greenville North Carolina.

    Dr. Monroe and his wife Christa have 3 daughters; Gabrielle age 16, and twins Rayna and Ra’mya age 14. Outside of serving as a father, son, brother, and educator, Dr. Monroe also serves as an associate minister at Perfecting Family and Friends Ministries in La Grange, North Carolina. He enjoys caring for his mother and spending time with his rather large family.

    Halifax County, NC- October 5, 2020

    Reopening of Schools

    At the Halifax County Board of Education meeting on Monday, October 5, 2020, the Board approved Superintendent Dr. Eric Cunningham’s recommendation to continue with remote learning for the next nine weeks. Dr. Cunningham stated that he would monitor for the next couple of weeks and reserves the right to modify his recommendation at November 2020 board meeting.

    Dr. Cunningham based his recommendation on survey data after listening to parents, students, staff and teachers. The data revealed that there are deep concerns about COVID-19 and its impact on reopening for in-person instruction. Halifax County Schools has suffered a terrible loss and it still resonates in our hearts and minds of our entire community. We will continue to work with our health department officials and monitor the data. With the support and guidance of our health experts, I am certain we will identify the best time to fully reopen. Safety is our highest priority and requires everyone to be in alignment to protect our most precious treasures our children.
