Atlantic City, NJ (December 21, 2020)—The Miss America Organization (“MAO”) is proud to announce the addition of Tyreek Moore to the national board of directors.
As the Miss America Organization continues to highlight professional development, scholarship, and social impact, adding members to the national board of directors focused on furthering the mission of women’s advancement is paramount. This new addition comes as the Miss America Organization gears up for the 100th Anniversary of the iconic institution.
Moore earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Boston University and his Master of Education degree from Harvard University. He served as Chief Operating Officer of one of the largest non-network charter schools in New York State, working to provide superior educational access to underserved children. As a professor at Monroe College (Bronx Campus), Moore has taught courses in Entrepreneurship, Project Management, Principles of Management, and Sports Management. In addition, he has led leadership workshops for clients such as Live Nation, Crum and Forster, Mantech, Def Jam Records, Campowerment and New York City Charter Schools.
“I am thrilled to have the honor to serve on the board of directors for the Miss America Organization. As the beneficiary of a woman, my late mother, who sacrificed everything to prepare me for life, one of my missions is to be a working advocate for the empowerment of young women to ensure equity and opportunity. This role will aid me in doing just that in several capacities,” said Moore.
As an executive coach, Moore supports corporate executives, athletes, school leaders and government staff in maximizing potential by removing internal and external barriers that exist. He believes when everyone is holding themselves accountable, and an entire organization is in alignment, the results are profound and extraordinary.
“We are honored to add Mr. Moore’s expertise to our National Board of Directors and agree with his philosophy regarding excellence,” said Shantel Krebs, Miss America Board Chairwoman. “As our organization progresses, it is important that we build leadership teams that better reflect our entire organization. We know that Mr. Moore will provide us valuable insight in our leadership development training, community outreach, scholarship efforts, and so much more. We are grateful he has chosen to dedicate his time to the betterment of MAO.”
The Miss America Organization made the decision to postpone the nationally televised annual competition until the fourth quarter of 2021. For updates on Miss America’s 100th Anniversary Celebration, visit MissAmerica.org.
