Press Release –

Rome City Schools would like to send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Gregory Shropshire who lost his life in a tragic accident involving an automobile.

Greg served Rome City Schools as an educator at the Rome Transitional Academy from July 2006 until April 2019 where he was instrumental in providing not only education but also mentorships for students. He was a leader in the Rome and Floyd County community. His passion for serving young people was apparent through his work with the 100 Black Men of Northwest Georgia and the Foundation Camp at Georgia Highlands.

Along with former Dean of Humanities and Professor of English at Georgia Highland College, Dr. Jon Hershey, Greg also worked to highlight the good in his community with a local television program titled “Community Watch.”

We are grateful for his service in our schools, and his contributions to our community will ensure his legacy is one we can all look to for guidance.
