R. Mitch Moore
R. Mitch Moore of Hundred is the Senior Class Representative for the Class of 2016. A graduate of Hundred High School, he is the son of Randy and Janet Moore, and he follows his great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother as a member of the Falcon Family. Moore graduates from Fairmont State University today with Bachelor of Science degrees in Accounting and Business Administration with a Finance concentration, and he is also a graduate of the FSU Honors Program.
“I came to Fairmont State to give it a chance,” Moore said. “My parents told me I could transfer anywhere I wanted after the first year, but before mid-term of my first semester I had no doubt that I would be at Fairmont State for the rest of my undergraduate career. My faculty were stellar, my fellow students were extremely supportive, and my time as Student Body President just culminated an already amazing experience.”
As a student at Fairmont State, Moore was named to either the President’s List or the Dean’s list each semester, was awarded multiple scholarships through the FSU School of Business, won the National Merit Scholarship Award through the Delta Mu Delta honorary, and received the Outstanding Student Leadership Award from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs. Additionally, Moore conducted research through the School of Business and the Honors Program concerning Foreign Currency markets and risk management strategies, and he presented that research at the University Celebration of Student Scholarship.
Moore is most notably recognized, though, for his involvement in University life. For two years, Moore served his fellow students and the University as the Student Body President. Throughout his experience at FSU, Moore was able to assist in the formation of five different student organizations, was an active member of more than ten, and was heavily involved in numerous community service projects.
“Graduating from a University is about so much more than the hours spent studying or in the classroom. My involvement on campus and the memories associated with that experience will be what I cherish for the rest of my life,” Moore said.
As a senior at Fairmont State, Moore challenged his class to be the first to donate a class gift to the University. Their gift is a Veterans Plaza signifying the University’s support and respect for its Student Veterans.
In December of 2015, Moore was accepted to pursue his Juris Doctorate at the West Virginia University College of Law as a member of the class of 2019, and he will begin his study at WVU in the fall of 2016.
