To provide scholarships and other benevolent services to Moore High School students and the School Community. For many years, our main focus was scholarships and occasional donations to school groups. We are now expanding our role to reach more school organizations needing help with special projects and yearly goals. We have also broadened our scope to include more local recognition and participation in the City Community in order to focus more attention on the needs of our students and to gain more members and donations.
Linda “Tex” Bryant, a Moore High graduate and a Teacher at MHS during the ‘70s and ‘80s, had the foresight to organize and establish the Moore High School Alumni Association. Coach Bryant gathered a number of her classmates and other alumni and in 1989, did what was necessary to qualify as a 501(c)(3) not for profit corporation.
In addition to providing Annual Scholarships, the Association supports Moore High School students in a variety of activities. These include Student Council, Special Olympics, Student Christmas Baskets, Non-Alcohol After-Prom party, numerous Athletic programs, student calculators, student clothing, and other programs.
The Association is funded entirely from alumni memberships, contributions, and fund raising events. All Board members and Officers are unpaid volunteers.
In 2009, the Moore War Run was established in cooperation with Westmoore High School Alumni Association as a major source of funds. The Run is held annually the Saturday before the Moore War football game. Our members volunteer to help during the 5k Run as well as pre-race organization. Everyone participating in the War Run helps to further causes in the school communities.
Our goals for the fiscal year 2012-2013 are to continue courtyard renovations, as well as increase memberships during a month dedicated to just that purpose. We are soliciting donations to add two more scholarships within the next two years.
For several years, our biggest challenge has been getting the word out that we exist! Many MHS alum own businesses in Moore or have children or grandchildren who attend MHS now or in the recent past. Unfortunately, too many of them still are not aware of our association or our good deeds. We have created a logo this year and are actively "branding" our organization in as many places as possible hoping it will generate questions and interest. We have upgraded, and continually work, on our website in order to make it easier for people to navigate and learn about us. We use this website to inform others of our projects and goals as well as a one-stop site to join or donate.
