Remembering Rose Moore

Karen Gray

Over the weekend the valley lost a staunch advocate for children — to many a good friend.  Rose Moore was well known in the CCSD education arena for her determination and fight. She believed wholeheartedly in helping students and holding the school district accountable.  So, that’s what she did…and did it well.   While her methods and perseverance may have caused a few administrators to yank out a lock or two of their own hair, every CCSD person I’ve spoken with in the last few days had the same, kind remembrances — “Rose was committed to her causes and she will be missed.”  Knowing Rose, there could be no better eulogy.

From Rose’s early days as a special education advocate to her recent bid for school board — and all the miles in-between — I have had the pleasure, support, fun and adventure of calling Rose a friend. I will sorely miss her.
