Moore has served in the district for more than two decades in numerous roles, including being a Shelver, Youth Services Coordinator and a branch manager at the Osage Beach location.
Moore also worked with both the Camdenton School District and School of the Osage by hosting reading programs, some of which included murder mystery nights for the older students and read-along programs for younger students.
