Dr. Mike Robinson
Welcome to Parents and PGCPS: Conversations for the Engaged Parent and Dedicated Educator. I am your host Dr. Michael Robinson. Over the past several days, I have embarked on a journey across our beautifully diverse communities to talk with parents/families, educators, community and civic leaders regarding their views and perspectives about the future of education in Prince George’s County.
One of those voices is David J. Grogan
David Jeffery Grogan
David Grogan has spent most his life in Prince George’s County Maryland where he attended and graduated from Oxon Hill High School. From there he attended Bowie State University as a Cooperative Education Program student, where he graduated from with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology. David is also a long time resident of Bowie, Maryland and a retired Federal Law Enforcement Agent with more than twenty-four years of service in addition to six years of active reserve duty military service with the United States Marine Corps. Last, but certainly the most important, he is the custodial parent of his teenage daughter Davienne Jordan Grogan.
After being unemployed for several months, pending controversial approval of his retirement, David was forced to do some “deep soul searching”. During this period of introspection, he concluded his talents would be utilized best as a professional public servant and advocate. David decided he would serve as the voice for those with no voice by seeking candidacy for the Maryland State Legislative Seat. Dave’s die-heart passion and youth development. David recognizes the need for MAJOR improvements in the representation of constituents whom reside in the Prince George’s County.
These improvements include education, addressing the crime rate, and small & large business economic development. David is also a strong advocate for the modernization of the Family Court System, for which he has written and implemented the “Proposed” Grogan Family Law Reform Act which is currently under review by the Department of Justice.
David Grogan is the proven strong leader, advocate, innovator and progressive thinker who can relate to the issues which impact the community and families of Prince George’s County. With his proven extensive history of effective leadership, which dates back to growing up in Glassmanor and being captain for the football teams at both Oxon Hill High School (OHHS) and Bowie State University (BSU).
