Regina Robinson

ReginaRegina Robinson was born Regina Elizabeth Alford on August 17, 1972 at The Ohio State University hospital in Columbus, Ohio.  The daughter of Thomas Earl and Geraldine Gore, Regina was raised in Tabor City, NC along with her sisters, Earlisha Gore and Pamelia Stanley.  Their family has since expanded to include an older sister, Victoria Morris and the new baby of the family, Zoe Gore.

From birth, Regina attended Mitchell Sea Missionary Baptist Church in Green Sea, SC.  This is the very church where she found salvation and was baptized at the age of 12.  She was very involved in the fabric of her congregation serving on the usher board, as assistant Sunday School secretary and as a part of the youth and junior choirs.  Regina also represented her home church at the Kingston Lake Association Anniversaries as a part of the choir and speaking competitions.  She is best known for her interpretation of “The Resolution of the Negro Youth”. 

Mrs. Robinson began her educational journey in Head Start’s preschool program and the Columbus County School system.  While attending Tabor City High School, she was involved in Band, Future Business Leaders of America, the National Honor Society, and ROCAME, to name a few.  She also participated as a part of the school’s math team for all four years and the Optimist Clubs speaking competition her junior year.  Her junior year also saw her serving on the student council as the Student Body Vice President.  In her senior year, she was voted class president as well as one of those mostly likely to succeed.  Even with her busy high school schedule, Regina’s love for others and math led her to tutor and help others in her community.

In 1990, Regina accepted a scholarship to attend North Carolina A&T in Greensboro, NC and pursue a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. While there, she met her future husband, John Robinson Jr. also a chemical engineering student.  After graduating together in May 1995, in June they became the proud parents of a baby boy they named Gabriel John Robinson.

In January of 1996, John’s job moved the family to Greenwood, SC where Regina would spend the next few years being a devoted wife and stay at home mother.  After her son entered school, she started tutoring at Piedmont Technical College.  When an opening for tutor coordinator was available, Regina took on that responsibility along with her tutoring duties.  In late 2008, she was contacted about teaching math at Piedmont Tech and she gladly accepted the offer. Regina has since developed a true love for teaching and knows it is a part of her purpose in life.

Regina has known for a while that she was called to inspire and encourage other women.  In spring of 2008, she and her baby sister, Pamelia Stanley, launched EWATE.com, a website whose main purpose is to empower and encourage women to be all they were created to be in order to fulfill God’s perfect plan for their lives.  Because of the tremendous examples set forth by her mother, Geraldine Gore, and grandmother, Elizabeth Alford, she has set out on a mission to help change the lives of women all over the world.

Regina and her family currently reside in Greenwood, SC.  They are a part of the body of Grace Community Church.  She is currently employed as an adjunct math instructor for Piedmont Tech and helps out in the Testing Center as well.  Regina is pursuing her dream to reach as many women as she can with the truth of God’s Love and His purpose for their lives.  Her personal motto is “It’s Not Over Til I Win” and for her, she wins when she sees others “WINNING”.
