In memoriam: Nora Moore ’07

Nora Moore, a first-year student from Tiverton, R.I., died April 24 after sustaining severe injuries in an April 16 car accident.

“There is nothing more devastating to a small and close community such as ours than the death of one of its members, particularly one so young and with such promise,” President Anthony Marx said in an e-mail to the campus community. “Such an awful event causes us inevitably to reflect on our own mortality and on that of our friends and loved ones. I hope we can all care for each other in this difficult time.”

Students, faculty and staff remembered Moore at an informal gathering held in the Cole Assembly Room a few days after her death. Staff from the Dean of Students Office and the Counseling Center were available for ongoing counseling, as were the religious advisors.
A member of the Equestrian Club at Amherst, Moore had been a member of the Student Council at Tiverton High School, where she also was co-captain of the women’s tennis team.

Moore’s survivors include her parents, Martha and Todd Moore; a sister, Abra; grandparents Sammie Le Baron Shinn and George Shinn ’45; 10 aunts and uncles; and eight cousins.
