Gerald L. McGregory, Director of Athletics & Activities at Brown Deer Middle/High School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in physical education.
Mr. McGregory earned a Bachelor of Science in physical education from the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater in 1994 and later achieved a master’s degree in health and human performance, with an emphasis in recreation, from his alma mater in 2011. At the start of his career, he found success with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee-LaVarnway Branch as a program director from 2000 to 2005, executive branch director from 2005 to 2008, and area director from 2008 to 2013. From there, Mr. McGregory applied his knowledge serving as the manager of youth sports for the Milwaukee Public Schools from 2013 to 2017.
Backed by nearly two decades of combined experience working with a nonprofit group and the Milwaukee Public Schools Recreation Department, along with his passion for working with the younger generation, Mr. McGregory has excelled as the director of athletics and activities at Brown Deering Middle/High School since 2017. Since seeing the athletic director job opening, he knew it would be the perfect opportunity for him to reach his dreams and make an impact on his community. Looking ahead, he hopes to expand his reach up to K- 12 students.
In his career, Mr. McGregory has found focusing on details as counterproductive, as opposed to paying attention to empowering students and giving them the tools needed to succeed, which further enables them to advance toward their goals more quickly. With this sentiment, his motto is “The devil is in the details.” Mr. McGregory deeply enjoys having a positive impact on the youth with as much fervor as he does playing basketball, a revelation about himself that prompted him to mentor the youth at Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Notably, he was inducted into the Beloit, WI Hall of Fame and was the recipient of the Woman of Will (WOW) Hall of Fame Award from BSN Sports and Under Armour in 2021.
