Today's Featured Biography
Claudia Hirst Moore
If you don't remember me, perhaps it is because I left high school at the end of my junior year (graduating officially a year early). I went away to college, bouncing between UT-Austin and UH a couple of times, but finally graduating from UT in 1974. I taught Distributive Education (D.E.) at Dickinson High School for three years (1975-1978), and decided to go to graduate school, at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus and eventually got a Ph.D. in Education (1983). For a year I taught at Southwest Texas State University (that's what it was called then) in San Marcos and then decided to go into commercial real estate--first in San Antonio and then in Austin. While in Austin I read in the want ads about a position with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in the division of community and technical colleges--it seemed a great fit for my background, and it was, and I stayed there for 3 years. Then, I decided to move to Missoula, Montana where I worked as the chief academic officer for a two-year technical college which was part of the University of Montana. We stayed in the Missoula area for 11 years--and absolutely loved it. But, I needed a career change upward... and then went to Genesee Community College in Batavia, New York (halfway between Buffalo and Rochester) as the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, for the next nine years. During those years, my husband and I finally decided that maybe we could afford a little trip to Italy--the first one in summer of 2001. We fell in love with Italy, and returned every summer (except one), and eventually retired and moved to Italy permanently (well, as permanently as anything in this life can be) in August 2008. We brought our cat, Quigley, with us.
Now we live in a very small Italian village, where we walk to town for groceries, to the doctor, to the pharmacy, to the green grocer for fruit and vegetables, to the butcher for meat, etc. I am involved in the Pro Loco (which is the chamber of commerce of our village) and now am involved in the local choir. We struggle to learn the language--I wish so much I had started this as a younger person--and little by little we are able to communicate better. Very few people in our village speak English--at least, that we know about.
I've been married to Gary Moore (no, not the musician or the old game show host) for 25 years. When I married him I became an instant (step)mother to his three children who are now grown with spouses and children of their own.
My mother still lives in the house where I lived as a girl in Pasadena, on the corner of Zapp and Austin. We moved there from Oklahoma the summer of 1965. I lived down the street from Leigh Fuller and Debbie Dantzler--and I have been so excited to reconnect with them during the past year. I feel the same way about the rest of our class, and hope that everyone will be motivated to come to the reunion.
As I have worked on the database for our class, I have been very sad to learn of so many of our classmates who are no longer with us, and I fear there will be quite a few more as we try to find everyone. Life is so short, and it is good to find old friends and see each other while we can. Please join us in November 2011 for our reunion, and also please help us find the rest of our classmates. We really need your help to find every single person.
