Leondra "Tricie" Lawery leads the lower school portion of the After School Program. She is a native of Montgomery, Alabama, and graduated from Jefferson Davis High School and Troy University-Montgomery, where she received a Masters Degree in Education in School Counseling. She also recently received certification by the National Board of Certified Counselors.
She is a mother of four children, and has served as a youth pastor for 15 years.
Of her transition to CGM, she says:
"Little did I know that God would lead me to CGM. It's funny how God works sometimes. It was actually at my graduation party that I found out about the Lower School Director position that was open. As I learned more about the position I began to pray and seek God’s direction. You see, this was not the path I thought I would take. It just wasn’t my plan. My plan was to find a school counseling position within the public school system. But God had a different plan for my life.
Now I know that all of those years of going to school at night after a full day of work, staying up all night long writing papers, studying for months for my certification exam was God’s way of qualifying me to serve the children of Washington Park at CGM."
