We're kicking off a new series of alumni profiles by interviewing Cooke Scholars from across our scholarship programs. We hope to inspire current and future Cooke Scholars by highlighting the incredible range of personalities, ambitions, and accomplishments of this talented group!
Cooke Scholar Carrie Moore was selected for the Young Scholars Program in 2001, and matriculated through higher education as a College Scholar in 2006 and a Graduate Scholar in 2011. Here are her thoughts:
I consider myself extremely blessed to have spent my high school, undergraduate, and graduate school years as a Cooke Scholar. With the Cooke Foundation’s support, I left the world of classical ballet training to attend Cedar Crest College where I became a proud women's college graduate. I later earned an MBA and hope to pursue a doctorate in educational leadership in the future. I've been happily working in education administration since 2010 and enjoy the cross-country travel it allows me. When I'm not working, I can be found cooking, running, or playing with any furry, four-legged creature I meet.
