OAN Welcomes Reginald McGregor to the Ohio Municipal Summit on Afterschool and Summer Learning

Reginald McGregor, Rolls Royce


With generous support from the National League of Cities and the Ohio Municipal League, the Ohio Afterschool Network is excited to announce Reginald McGregor as the keynote speaker for the upcoming Ohio Municipal Summit on Afterschool and Summer Learning.

Today Reginald is Manager of Engineer Employee Development for Rolls Royce, but he has always had a fascination with how things work.

As a boy, he tinkered with his bicycle to see if he could add extra gears. He remembers getting in trouble for taking the back off the family’s television set. His mother was a teacher and his family owned three sets of encyclopedias.

That little boy grew up to become an engineer and now it’s his job to inspire the next generation of talent.

As manager of engineering employee development at Rolls-Royce Corp., McGregor is tasked with making sure the aircraft-engine maker has enough engineering talent for the years ahead. His primary role is to work with college engineering students who are doing co-op work at the company. But over the years, he’s discovered the value in interesting students as young as middle-school age in science, technology, engineering and math classes—often called STEM—and of building a network of Rolls-Royce volunteers who can help him with this effort.

OAN is thrilled to welcome Reginald as our keynote speaker who will illuminate the connection between workforce readiness and Afterschool, helping Ohio’s decision makers learn more about Afterschool as a proven strategy and inspire participants to make a difference in their own communities.
