Devin Ray, Principal of DC Prep’s Benning Middle Campus, is a New York native and University of Albany Alum, who has fallen in love with the DMV area. With Principal training from RELAY’s National Principal Academy Fellowship and DC’s School Leader Lab, he’s increased his self and social awareness and done the work to identify the values that will empower him to lead Benning Middle School. His values grounded in equity, justice, and black excellence drove his work as an Academic Fellow, Social Studies instructor, Humanities Academic Assistant Principal, and will drive his work as Principal. Starting his work at Benning Middle in 2015, the love and family feel that he’s experienced at BMC is synonymous with the feelings he hopes students, families, and staff feel throughout their time at Benning Middle. Partnering with our families to design an enriching student experience is the work ahead of us, and Devin is most excited to embark on that work with BMC leaders, faculty, and staff.
