This year will be the last graduation at which Dr. Simon Moore will be with us as Superintendent of Schools in Cromwell. This year was Dr. Moore's 23rd year of service to the Cromwell community, having served since 1950. In a past yearbook the class of 1959 expressed an appropriate feeling worth reading.
"To you, Mr. Moore, our Chief Navigator, we express our heartfelt gratitude for a course well charted. Four years ago you mapped out our voyage and kept us on that course. Although the sailing was sometimes rough, we reached our cherished destination due to your wise guidance. We doff our caps to you and say, 'Thanks for steering us to port.'"
Dr. Simon Moore has been a leading figure in the most remarkable years of growth and development of the Cromwell Educational System. He served as superintendent during construction of the Edna C. Stevens Elementary School and he also supervised the establishment of Cromwell High School, the first secondary school facility in our town. The excellent quality of the programs in operation in the Cromwell Schools attest to a dedicated leadership.
Dr. Moore was born in Abington, Massachusetts. He graduated from the Bridgewater State Teachers College in Bridgewater, Massachusetts in 1934. He was awarded a Master of Arts from the University of Connecticut in 1947, and a doctorate in School Administration from UCONN in 1963. Dr. Moore spent three years as a teacher in the Putnam schools, and after That the rest of his career was spent in administration in the Putnam, Norwich and Cromwell schools.
Now, in this last yearbook that Dr. Simon H. Moore will appear as superintendent, we wish to give him a special thanks for 23 years of dedicated service to the educational needs of Cromwell.
