What are your college, service, future goals?
Moore: “I will be attending Penn State University in the Fall, majoring in either Finance or Accounting. I plan on trying out for the club lacrosse team and playing other sports like intramural basketball. After college, I hope to get a good job and be successful in whatever field I choose. For service, I will try to keep serving in ways such as participating in Penn State’s Thon.”
How do you describe leadership?
Moore: “To me, leadership is setting a good example and being a positive role model. For a large group like a lacrosse team, it’s important to have good leaders that keep the team together and make sure everyone understands their responsibilities. A leader doesn’t worry about individual success and does whatever it takes for the team to be successful.”
How do you balance lacrosse, school, and extracurriculars?
Moore: “I think it just comes down to not wasting time. Especially during the season when my schedule gets crazy, it’s important to always be productive and make good use of my time. I try to take everything one step at a time and put full effort into whatever I’m doing whether its a practice, game or doing schoolwork.”
