Marsh Joins Normandy as New Director of Community Partnerships & Engagement


Regina Marsh has joined Normandy as Director of Community Partnerships & Engagement, a newly created role where she will lead district strategies to provide wraparound supports for students and families, and coordinate community engagement initiatives. Marsh will also serve as the district’s Chief Attendance Officer, working with students, families and staff to eliminate barriers and streamline tracking processes for the district with attendance matters.

Prior to joining Normandy, Marsh led the Booker T. Washington Community Service Center (BTWCSC) and John Burton Housing partnership in San Francisco. There she was responsible for implementation of the organization’s strategic plan, as well as directing its fundraising, marketing, financial management, and program creation and oversight.

In 2017 Marsh joined the Memphis Education Fund (MEF) as its chief operating officer. In this role, she worked with Memphis school districts to help these schools achieve their strategic objectives to improve educational outcomes for students.

Before joining MEF, Marsh served as the chief executive officer of Forest Manor Multi-Service Center where she led staff in providing outreach programs including family and workforce development, senior services and wellness, childcare and youth social development and mental health services.

“Regina’s passion for assisting those in need is ingrained in her character and is evident in the work she has consistently done for the community she serves,” said Marcus C. Robinson, Normandy Superintendent of Schools. “Regina has a successful track record in garnering support for initiatives that are designed to enrich the community. We know that she will be a positive influence on our district’s students, families and staff.”

Since joining Normandy in July, Marsh has already collaborated with several organizations on community projects including the Friday Food Box Giveaway (in partnership with Operation Food Search). She is also performing a comprehensive review of the student attendance tracking procedures in the district to help improve Normandy’s student attendance numbers.

“It is an absolute honor to serve the families in our community,” Marsh said. “I look forward to collaborating with our dedicated partners as well as working with our staff to ensure we are providing an educational experience that elevates and benefits the whole child.”

Marsh is the recipient of several recognitions including the Sagamore of Wabash award from the Indiana Governor’s Office, National Coalition of 100 Black Women Breakthrough Woman Award, and Martin University President’s Award. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University in business administration.
