Principal's Corner

This is a photograph no sound. Dr. Lorenza Pharrams

Having worked with the Montgomery Public school system for more than 20 years, Dr. Lorenza Pharrams is a transitional leader who has worked extensively throughout the system at the directives of three superintendents. Lorenza Pharrams and his team of educators have been assigned to three schools within Montgomery Public School system to “fix” existing problems. Prior to these assignments Lorenza Pharrams served as the principal of two additional schools.

His existing work has credited him as a “change agent” in the field of education and a passionate advocate for higher education.  Dr. Pharrams is a staunch supporter of public education.  He received a public education during his formative years and vowed to serve the students receiving a public education in the city of Montgomery, wholeheartedly. 

As the principal of Robert E. Lee High School, he serves the students and faculty tirelessly. Since his arrival at Robert E. Lee High School, significant changes have occurred. He and his team initiated a strong schoolwide mentoring program that has changed the course of student achievement. The Disciplinary infractions have decreased by 80 percent over the last five years and the graduation rate has increased by 20 percent over the last three years.    

When the opportunity presents itself, Dr. Pharrams eloquently recites the poem “It Couldn’t Be Done” as a means of explaining to the students and faculty that all things are possible.  His firm belief in God and the principles of his upbringing were the catalytic elements that pushed him to strive for and obtained four college degrees.    

He received a Bachelor’s of Science in General Business in 1995 from Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University a Master’s of Science in Education in 2001 from Troy State University, an Education Specialist degree from Troy University in 2010 and a Doctorate of Education in 2013 from Alabama State University.
