The Arrell and Rosa Lee Moore School of Education
Renaming the School of Education
Out of profound appreciation for their generous contributions toward enhanced innovation and broader influence, the Trustees of Piedmont International University renamed the School of Education in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Arrell Moore on August 4, 2014.
About Arrell and Rosa Lee Moore
In a recent letter to Piedmont, the Moores wrote, "We are Arrell and Rosa Lee Moore and we love Piedmont. This school has had a special place in our hearts since we were students." Arrell graduated in 1958 and Rosa Lee in 1959.
Arrell was reared on a farm in Delco, NC and trusted Jesus as Savior at the age of nine in his home church. Rosa Lee was born in Winston Salem, NC and accepted Christ at the age of eight in Chicago, IL at a children’s meeting led by Dr. Warren.
The Moores have served the Lord in three churches: Salem Baptist Church (NC), First Baptist Church (CA), and now Calvary Baptist Church (NC). As faithful church members, the Moores have served as teachers, greeters, and choirs members. Arrell has been a deacon, trustee, and board chairman for two Christian Camps. He is also a trustee at Piedmont where he has served multiple terms since the 1970s.
Rosa Lee’s father, Lincoln Donevant, was the first fulltime professor at Piedmont after graduating from Moody Bible Institute. As a teenager Rosa Lee sang in the Piedmont Chorale and took evening classes at the college. She taught first grade at Salem Baptist Day School for 30 years. Her mother started the school under the ministry of Piedmont's founder, Dr. Charles Stevens.
The Moores have been married since 1959 and count it a blessing to be His servants.
