On March 21st TCCTC honored Moore, Inc. Founder and CEO, Karen B. Moore,
as the 2019 Faith & Profession Award recipient.
The annual Faith & Profession Award recognizes professionals who are dedicated community leaders rooted in faith. The reception began at 5:30 pm at the FSU Alumni Center. The Honorable Major Harding, previous award winner, presented the award to Moore in front of community leaders, professional colleagues, and friends.
TCCTC’s Faith & Profession Award has become an important annual event in the life of the college and Tallahassee’s professional community. TCCTC Graduate and Former Board Chair Gary Griffin explains:
“Today’s world tells us we need to divorce our faith from our work, and that is just not true. This award has been established in order to recognize those professionals and community leaders who live out their Christian faith in the workplace, truly demonstrating that everything that we do, as people of faith, is ministry.”
In addition to the annual award, Marty Stubblefield, a Business and Government Leader and TCCTC Board Member presented the keynote address.
Jo Anne Arnett, TCCTC Founder and President, presented the Faith & Profession Student Scholarship to Curtis Tygres, a Tallahassee EMS First Responder. Mr. Tygres graduated from TCCTC’s Bachelor’s Degree Program last summer and is now enrolled in the Master’s Program.
