employee of the week

Patrick Gray of Chatham High School

Chatham High School (CHS) is pleased to announce Mr. Patrick Gray as our employee of the week.  Mr. Gray proudly serves CHS as the custodial groundskeeper.  His dedication to the appearance and overall maintenance of our school is not only appealing to the eye but uplifting to the spirit.  Mr. Gray understands and welcomes his role in the academic process as such, “when students come to the campus, I want them to feel good about themselves and also be inspired by their surroundings.  I feel like if they are in a nice setting, they will perform better.”

Mr. Gray feels that the school’s appearance goes far beyond the general “upkeep” of the grounds, and serves as an instrumental part of the students’ daily attitude and approach.  With him, Mr. Gray brings extensive general work experience through a multitude of areas.  He has worked as a crane operator at various locations and works as a mechanic in his spare time.  His vast working knowledge has proven to be an invaluable asset to our building.

Mr. Gray has been married to his wife Tonya for the past 21 years.  Tonya is also employed by PCS as a pre-K aide at Gretna Elementary School.  Mr. Gray is also the proud father of three daughters and one son.  He has one daughter at each of the Gretna Schools (elementary, middle, and the high school), and his 20 year-old son is employed by Doss Electric of Gretna.

Again, our faculty and staff would like to thank Mr. Gray for his hard work, dedication, and willingness to go the extra mile in order to accomplish necessary tasks.  He is most deserving of this special recognition. Congratulations Mr. Gray!
