LaDana Moore recently graduated from University of Texas at Tyler with a bachelor of science in speech communication. Ms. Moore had several reasons for choosing University of Texas at Tyler.
According to her, it was close to home. Moreover, it is in the University of Texas system with great reputation. Besides, she found it to be what anyone who is serious about academics and life skills needs.
“It was a rigorous program,” she said. “Still, I feel better about attending UTT. This is not a skating through and learning little or nothing school.” Moore asserted that UTT have prepared her for the life ahead. The program was extremely thorough. “My education at University of Texas at Tyler is worth every penny,” she said. “I had to buckle down, study very hard and focus on what is important for now and the future.”
She is full of praise for the school and insists UT Tyler is a distinguished university where students have to work hard. She did and prayed very much, too. “However, it is well worth it. It prepares you for a brighter future.”
Moore graduated from Longview High School where she excelled in extracurricular activities. She was active in several organizations including: being Viewette officer, Tops Teen of America, AKA Debutante, very active in her church, Red Oak Baptist Church where Reverend Homer C. Rockmore, Sr. is pastor. College is a good life tool that you will be able to carry with you all your life. The friends, the knowledge, the experience will come in handy every day of your life.
The fact is a four-year college is not for everyone. Nonetheless, Moore is giving the same advice her grand father, Willie B. Moore gave to her, which is, “Go to college or trade school, pursue your passion and it will not look like work.” She is grateful and appreciative of the positive people who encouraged and supported her UTT journey. “Without them it would have been difficult.”
Moore is the daughter is of Windell and Sharon Moore. Her grand parents are Willie B. and Ola D. Moore; Louis and Willie Mae Winn. Her sisters Ashley and Alicia attend University of Houston and University of North Texas respectively. Moore’s final advise to anyone especially students is, “Never, never give up.”
