Dr. Moore is a member of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) and has experience in community service and fundraising for a variety of organizations.

"I am incredibly honored and proud to have been chosen to serve as the next president of Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College,” said Dr. Moore. “I appreciate the confidence the college family, Dr. McCall, the Southeast Board of Directors, and the Southeast community have placed in me as I assume the leadership role of this fine institution. SKCTC is indeed one of the ‘Nation’s Top 10 Community Colleges’. It will be a privilege to work with many local professionals to ensure a seamless transition of leadership."

Dr. Moore will begin serving as president effective July 8 following the retirement of long-time SKCTC president Dr. Bruce Ayers.
