About Me


Theopalis
K. Gregory, Sr.
is a Wilmington resident.  He graduated from De La Warr High School,
University of Delaware, and University of Florida, School of Law.

                While
at the University of Delaware he played football, running at fullback.  The University enjoyed two small college
national championships in 1971 and 1972. 
He’s a member of the school’s 1,200 yard club.  Theo was inducted into the Delaware
Afro-American Sports Hall of Fame in 2001.

                He
has enjoyed a broad career.  Commencing with
what was to become a life-long career of public services, he was a Reginald Heber Smith Fellow practicing
poverty law at our local Community Legal Aide Society from 1977-1979.  From there he received an appointment by
President Jimmy Carter as an Assistant
United States Attorney
,  District of
Delaware from 1979 – 1984, where he was assigned to prosecute cases on behalf
of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) and the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA).  He was the first
Black to hold this position.  He received
a recognition certificate for his DEA prosecution of the Pagan Motorcycle Club
for trafficking in methamphetamine.  The
hallmark of this federal career was the ATF prosecution of the Ku Klux Klan for
firearms violations
.

                Next,
he entered private practice in 1984, where he remained
until 1994, before assuming an assignment as an Assistant Public Defender, primarily representing juveniles in
Family Court.  During this ten (10) years
in private practice span he handled personal injury, criminal defense, probate
and real estate matters
.   He now returns
to private practice, where he again has chosen to locate in the heart of the
community, and where he is visible and accessible.

                For
twenty-four years Theo served as a member of the Wilmington City Council, from 1984-2008, having been elected six
times.  He passed legislation in varied
areas of city government and served in numerous leadership positions.  He proudly notes that he’s a principal
founder of the Police Athletic League Youth Activities Center on N. Market
Street; Maurice J. Moyer Academy; and provided leadership in renovation of Eden
Park Athletic Field and P.S. DuPont Athletic Fields.  Finally, he is a principal founder of the
City’s youth tackle football program, and played a leading role in reviving the
Baynard Stadium Wednesday Night Youth Track and Field Program. 

                From
2006-2010 Theo served as the Director of the Maurice J. Moyer Academy.  He was the principal founder of this urban
charter school for grades 6-12.  This
novel grade configuration provides continuity for six years, and the City’s
only traditional public high school.
