Education Foundation Hall of Fame to Induct Three
Three graduates of the Moore County school system who have gone on to successful careers will be honored at a special banquet this week.
Catherine Graham, former Moore County clerk of Superior Court; Gregory B. Morrison, vice president and chief information officer of Cox Enterprises; and former professional baseball player James Baldwin III will be inducted into the Public Education Foundation of Moore County’s Hall of Fame at 6 p.m. Thursday at the National Golf Club in Pinehurst. The event is open to the public.
“We invite everyone to our fourth annual Hall of Fame banquet, where we will induct three members of the community who have all graduated from Moore County schools and have continued on to do great things,” said Foundation President Andrew Lyons. “These are home-grown success stories that represent those who left the area and came back, as well as those who remained in the community where they made their careers. We are happy to honor them for their contributions to Moore County.”
Cocktails will begin at 6 p.m., with dinner to start at 6:45 p.m. Inductees will be recognized after the entertainment portion of the program.
Formed in 1985, the Foundation awards grants to teachers who bring “creative ideas that fall out of the budget” of Moore County Schools to their attention.
“In a way, it’s a shame the Foundation has to exist,” Lyons said. “In my perfect world, there would be more money out there for these projects.”
The Pinecrest High School String Ensemble and members of the award-winning Pinecrest chorus will perform.
“Both are grant recipients for this year,” committee member Laura Lang said.
Admission to the event is $50 and may be confirmed by phoning committee members Wanda Little at (910) 215-4538 or Lang at (910) 528-1041.
