Larry Moore was born and raised in Atlanta, and his ancestors were among Georgia’s early settlers. He stole the school bus while in high school, but served no time and went on to receive an engineering degree from Georgia Tech. He later did graduate work in management and economics at several colleges in different sections of the country. With wife Jenny (an Agnes Scott alum, who has no record), Moore purchased a home on Lake Oconee in 1994. He retired in 2000 after careers as an AT&T vice president, founder of MooreCom, and division president of CD Tech.
In addition to his role as a member of the AW75 planning committee, Moore’s other current and former community activities include: chairman of the Historic Scenic Byway Corp. Board, advisory board member (Business) at Georgia College, columnist for the Eatonton Messenger and Lake Oconee News, Georgia Public Radio (NPR) commentator, Eatonton Main Street board chairman, Rock Hawk Effigy & Museums CEO, Eatonton Kiwanis. He is a past Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year and Volunteer of the Year for Putnam County.
Past outside activities have included: running marathons and triathlons, bicycling, running with the 1984 Olympic Torch and serving on 1996 Olympic Committees, coaching Little League baseball and community basketball, and recruiting minorities and women for MIT and Georgia Tech.
