    Dr. Leslie Alexander 
    R.J. Reynolds High School Principal
     
    On the afternoon of January 11, 2020, RJR Principal Dr. Leslie Alexander spoke to (and answered questions posed to her by) the RJR Alumni gathered at the RJR Black Box Theater.  The weather forecast for that evening was for heavy rain (and there also was a tornado watch posted in the area).  It had been raining on-and-off all day long.  At 5:00 pm (when this event started), the skies looked quite "threatening."   Because of that, the turn-out of Alumni was not as high as had been hoped for.  Also, FYI:  Dr. Alexander had spent the entire day helping her daughter move into an apartment...and when this event ended, she went back to the apartment to continue helping her daughter.
     
    However, when one finishes watching the entire video, they will have a very good idea of what current-day RJ Reynolds High School is like...and what challenges Leslie and her team of professional educators constantly face. To see a video of this, click here ( * ).   It is one hour long...and there are things she mentions throughout this 60 minutes that you probably did not know!
