"Gretrell is the staff coordinator of PPM's Prevention Program. A professional guitarist, Gretrell gave up a lucrative music career traveling around the country with several well know artists such as Whitney Houston. His calling and heart now centers around youth. This humble man, with a depth of character, is a role model for the at-risk students he works with in schools and probation offices in Tennessee and Georgia." This was written  in a newsletter about "Trell" (as those at the office call him) in 1995 and it still holds true today some 20 yrs later.

Gretrell Watkins has been with PPM since 1994, and started the Prevention program in 1995. He is married to Cassandra, they have one daughter.
