Moore Wins National Mentor Award
August 5, 2015

Washington, IA – Mike Moore, President/CEO of the United Presbyterian Home in Washington, Iowa, has been selected to receive the 2014 Dr. Herbert Shore Outstanding Mentor Award from LeadingAge, a national association representing 6,000 nonprofit aging-services organizations throughout the United States.

The award honors Mike for his dedication, commitment and passion for mentoring others in the aging-services field.  Leaders of organizations across Iowa and the country have benefited from his willingness to share experiences and advise on issues throughout their careers.  He was instrumental in creating LeadingAge Iowa’s EMERGE program to make leadership training more accessible to emerging aging-services leaders, and a number of his own staff have become graduates.  When those he has mentored share their experiences working with him they emphasize that he fostered an environment of learning in which ideas can be freely shared, encouraged the advancement of education and skills as well as supported the implementation of innovative ideas.

“Over the years, Mike has served as my mentor, coach, colleague, and friend—all of which I treasure. Through his service with the state and national associations, his persevering attitude, passion for those we serve, and professional and personal integrity guide me and others in good and challenging times. Mike not only exemplifies the qualities of leadership and that of a mentor in our field, but also in all aspects of his life- a true expression of one’s character.” Said Millisa Tierney, Executive Director of NewAldaya Lifescapes in Cedar Falls, IA.

Mike will accept the award at the LeadingAge national conference taking place this October in Nashville.
