Moore Community Room to be Dedicated, April 15
“Multipurpose” Campus Room Renamed for Former LSC President and Her Husband
April 1, 2014
The Vermont State College’s Board of Trustees approved Lyndon State College President Joe Bertolino’s request to rename the multipurpose room in the Academic and Student Activity Center on the LSC campus. The room commonly referred to as ASAC 100, will be named The Carol A. and Thomas E. Moore Community Room. The dedication and ribbon cutting will be April 15 at 12:30 p.m.
Carol A. Moore stepped down in 2011 after thirteen years as LSC president. During her presidency, 15 new academic programs were added and the Patrick and Marcelle Leahy Center for Rural Students was created. Moore secured Lyndon’s first two $1 million gifts—as part of The Second Century Campaign—and oversaw the construction of two buildings, the Rita Bole Complex in 2005 and the Academic and Student Activity Center in 2009. Moore is the Executive Director of NorthWoods Stewardship Center. In 2012, she was named Director of Strategic Initiatives and served in that capacity until becoming Executive Director.
Tom Moore was an educational leader and innovative dean of Northeastern University’s College of Business Administration. Under his leadership, CBA initiated the Bachelor of Science in International Business (BSIB) program, which has partnerships with universities in seven different countries. He championed the Social Enterprise Institute, which enables students to develop microfinance projects in impoverished regions of the world. Moore designed and launched an online MBA program — which today is recognized as one of the world’s best. He served honorably as a retired Commander of the U.S. Navy and veteran of the Vietnam War. Moore died in June 2011.
Bertolino said, “This represents only a sampling of what each of these leaders accomplished in their lives. Central to both of their professional and personal accomplishments is their commitment to student learning and growth. As such, I see it as immensely appropriate to name the room in their honor.”
The public is invited to the ribbon cutting, dedication, and the reception which will immediately follow the 12:30 p.m. ceremony. For more information, contact Darcie Miles at 802 626-6404 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
