ROOSEVELT, NY, July 7, 2017 — Marquis Who’s Who, the world’s premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to name Emily Moore a Lifetime Achiever. An accomplished listee, Ms. Moore celebrates many years’ experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who’s Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
With more than 50 years of professional experience, Ms. Moore serves as the founder and executive director of Alliance Junior Development Program Inc., a company dedicated to tennis instruction, athletic training, youth development, counseling, leadership training, sports consulting, event planning and community organizing. She is also a teacher with Ulysses Byas Elementary School, where she is responsible for developing the curriculum and teaching students about the basics of tennis. As an expert in tennis instruction, youth development and personal training, Ms. Moore places emphasis on stroke production and the technical aspects of the swing in an effort to teach sound fundamentals from the ground up. She also introduces the basic strategies of the game and explains point progression, court positioning, patterns and sequences, percentage plays and live ball drill work, among other techniques.
Ms. Moore chose to pursue a career in physical education after she discovered that she had a natural ability to be successful in team sports. She states, “The team spirit carried over to my individual endeavors, setting an uncompromising standard of excellence. In every game, you meet on the field with an expectation of fair play. When I learned that in the game of life not everyone was treated fairly, I set out to demand fairness by speaking out against inequality and injustice whenever I saw it around me.” As a testament to these beliefs, Ms. Moore was the first of 11 students at Morgan State University to be arrested for refusing to leave a segregated movie theatre.
Upon receiving a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Morgan State University in 1965, Ms. Moore served the global community as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nigeria, where she was present through three military coups in their Civil War. She later organized The Friends of SNCC in Paris, and served with Queen Mother Moore for three years in a delegation touring the United States and Tanzania. Ms. Moore later received a Master of Science in Education and Counseling from Hofstra University in 1972. Most recently, she served as an ambassador in the People to People Program in 2010, and she is currently raising funds to build a school in Haiti.
A respected authority in her field of expertise, Ms. Moore published a book entitled, “Just Like It Is.” She has received numerous awards in recognition of her dedication to physical education and the pursuit of equality and justice, including the Women of Distinction Award from Nassau County in 2015. In addition, Ms. Moore has received the Summer Appreciation Award from the Alliance of Junior Tennis Development Program, Outstanding Citizen Contribution to Improve Education from the Martin Luther King Junior Annual Honors and Awards Program, Dedication Award from Harlem Junior Tennis, and Tennis Development Award from The Black Tennis & Sports Foundation, among many others. In 2015, Ms. Moore was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from Morgan State University.
