Gregory Steps Down As Fuqua AD

FARMVILLE — Fuqua School Athletic Director Marcus Gregory has stepped down from his position to move to Massachusetts. The school is now searching for a replacement for Gregory.

“I am leaving for professional opportunities. I will be working on my master’s in accounting and preparing to get my CPA,” said Gregory.

“After being in the area for 32 years, I have really enjoyed my experience at Fuqua and getting to stay involved in the Prince Edward County community. I will definitely miss the young students I worked with in the area.”

Gregory began working for Fuqua in 2011 and was also the Director of Basketball at the school. He was the first African-American administrator and athletic director in school history.

While at Fuqua, Gregory had a 68 percent winning average as varsity boys basketball coach. Under his coaching, his team was crowned the 2014 regular season champions.

Fuqua’s varsity football team had two state championship appearances  (2013 and 2014) while Gregory was athletic director. Fuqua’s only varsity baseball team to win the state championship in school history (2014) was also while Gregory was athletic director.
