School's Name to Salute Moore's Career
Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) broke ground April 24 at the site of the new Marilyn Moore Middle School in southeast Lincoln.
“In the educational world, it’s every teacher’s dream to some day start his or her own school, and it’s every retired teacher’s dream to have a building named after them,” says Marilyn Moore, EdD.
“It was my privilege to help launch the Zoo School high school program while I was in the LPS administration, and I was totally stunned when I found out about the new school’s name. It’s a huge honor.”
Dr. Moore is president of Bryan College of Health Sciences.
Her career in education includes a decade as a teacher at Goodrich Middle School, five years as an administrator in human resources for Lincoln Public Schools and 25 years as associate superintendent for instruction for LPS. She also served as chair of the Bryan Medical Center Board and presi-dent of the Lincoln Children’s Museum and Lincoln Action Program. She was a board mem-ber of Junior Achievement, Food Bank and Lincoln Symphony.
The new middle school at 84th and Yankee Hill Road will open in the fall of 2017.
