Event description

Description

Come celebrate the Retirement of Dr. Emily Moore, Founder and Executive Director of the Alliance Junior Development Program Inc., and Teacher with Ulysses Byas Elementary School.

Dr. Moore attributes much of her inner strength to her mother, who told her to always do her best. She took these words to mean that she should be consistent and disciplined, and exercise self control while working hard at everything she does. A strong advocate of civil rights, Dr. Moore was an active demonstrator while she was attending Morgan State University. She takes pride in being the first of 11 students to be arrested for refusing to leave a segregated lunch counter. This event gained so much attention that Dr. Martin Luther King visited the college to encourage Dr. Moore and her colleagues to keep working toward their goals. Dr. Moore eventually completed a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education, and went on to receive a Master of Science in Education and Counseling from Hofstra University in 1972. Dr. Moore received an Honorary Doctorate from her undergraduate school – Morgan State University on December, 18, 2015.

This night is dedicated to celebrating Dr. Moore's accomplishments and her dedication to the children of Roosevelt UFSD and community.
