Strengthening Families
Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma

Muskogee Public Schools has nominated Rev. Charles Moore as its outstanding mentor of the year for Strengthening Families, a program of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma.

“Pastor Charles Moore is totally invested in young people in Muskogee,” said Melony Carey, director of secondary education for Muskogee Public Schools.

“He has had a huge impact on Alice Robertson Junior High School where his organization provides after school mentoring for students through the 21st Century After-School Program. He works primarily with youth whose parents are incarcerated through (the Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma’s) Strengthening Families program, but is a strong mentor for all students at the high school.”

Rev. Moore organized an evening carnival for students and parents to attend. Over 300 students and staff members attended the event.

“His mentorship in our schools is having a positive effect on student attendance, grades and discipline,” Carey said.

Moore is the pastor at the First Baptist Church Summit in Muskogee.
