(CPT (Ret) Kerwin J. Tregre) ----- BIO
I am Captain Kerwin J. Tregre, the Senior Army Instructor (SAI) of JROTC at Raul Yzaguirre Schools for Success. Prior to assuming my duties as the SAI at RYSS in September 2016, I was the Senior Army Instructor (SAI) of JROTC at Furr High School HISD for twenty years from 1975 to 2015. I have over twenty years in the education field, including language education, health education, and Senior ROTC. Before joining Furr High School, HISD I taught Senior ROTC at Prairie View A&M University located in Prairie View, Texas as an Assistant Professor of Military Science.
Prior to entering the education field, I served 20 years in the US Army. I enlisted in the Army in June 1975 and received a commission from Infantry OCS in 1983. Overseas assignments include four tours to Germany where I commanded a Headquarters Detachment and a Supply and Service Company in a Forward Support Battalion in the 8th Infantry Division. I have served in other major military assignments as a Battalion Training and Operations Officer (S3), and also served as a Combat Trainer/Observer Controller at the Combat Maneuver Training Center, USAREUR. Previous and follow-on assignments were primarily in the area of logistics.
I received a B.S. in Business Management from Maryland University and also attended Xavier University in New Orleans Louisiana. I was born and raised in New Orleans in a family of five brothers and four sisters.
I am a strong advocate of hands-on learning, and I involve students in a variety of community service, problem-solving, and technology-infused activities that provide them with opportunities to develop their skills and to learn the importance of being a good citizen by helping others. Having spent over 15 years in Europe, my special project includes the organization of annual trips to Europe for students and parents.
