Class of 1961 - Inducted 1994
Terry was inducted into the SHSAA Hall of Fame in 1994.
Mr. Moore is the President of the Omaha Federation of Labor of the AFL-CIO. That alone should qualify him for induction into our Hall of Fame, but that is just the start of the story. As a graduate of SHS in the early sixties, Mr. Moore did what so many young men did in South Omaha-he worked in the meat processing business. He eventually moved on to become a machine operator at Kellogg's and in 1976 he became president of the labor federation.
In 1997 Terry More was named one of Omaha's ten outstanding young people, and was presented the Outstanding Citizen's Award by Mayor Al Veys. Mr. Moore's list of achievements includes the Honorary Alumnus Award from Creighton University, the Tree of Life Honor from the Jewish National Fund, and (although a life long Democrat) the 1000 Points of Light Award from President George Bush.
Terry Moore's community service is exemplary -- having served as chairman of the Salvation Army Tree of Lights Campaign, vice president of Salvation Army, charter member and vice president of the Omaha Schools Foundation and a member of the United Catholic Social Services Board. He is also the Vice Chairman of the Labor Division of United Way and Co-chairs the Goal V Committee of the Omaha 2000 project. He serves on the Advisory Councils of Creighton University and the Universities of Nebraska at Lincoln and Omaha. He also started and chairs the annual Septemberfest Salute to Labor.
