Dr. Jeff Moore came back for homecoming a few weeks ago and mentioned to Colonel Brown that he would like to speak to the Cadets about his life and especially his experience at the Pentagon during 9-11. This was recently made into a reality.
Quicky relating to the Cadets, Dr. Moore spoke of his time attending Hargrave and how he decided on a career path as a Cadet. He spoke about traveling the world while working on his education and how he ended up working in the Pentagon on that fateful day.
Many of the Cadets in attendance were not alive during 9-11 but all were engrossed in his emotional story of his friends and coworkers and their actions just seconds after the plane hit the building.
After his talk, Dr. Moore took questions from the Cadets and spent some time talking to a few seniors who wanted to know more about an intelligence career.
Dr. Moore is the CEO of Muir Analytics which "provides threat intelligence that helps corporations reduce exposure to severe financial loss from political violence, terrorism, insurgency, and like conflicts."
Andrew is excited to be a part of such a great school and is ready for the tasks ahead.
He is no stranger to military boarding schools. Andrew is a 1998 graduate of Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington Missouri, where he attended for high school and junior college. "My brother had a friend in college who recommended Wentworth to my parents, apparently little Andrew reminded him of himself as a future cadet."
Andrew never expected to return to boarding schools but after he and his wife had begun their family, Andrew rediscovered the magic of what a school like Hargrave can do for a young man.
In his journey to Chatham, Andrew has been a teacher, coach, TAC, marketing director and admissions director at five other military boarding schools. As a coach, his military drill team was nationally ranked and four of his cadets went on to be members of the West Point Drill Team.
Andrew and Jennifer are enjoying living in bucolic Chatham with their two children and are very proud to be members of the Hargrave family.
