The presentation will focus on the power of educating young women and the benefits that education yields to families and communities. Moore will focus her comments on global education, while Walters will focus on local education issues.
A graduate of Otterbein College with degrees in speech communication, education and history-government, Moore taught at several different universities after earning a master’s degree in theatre from Eastern Michigan University. She completed a master’s degree in accounting at Ball State University and became a certified public accountant soon thereafter. While operating her own business, Moore completed her doctorate in accounting through the Union Institute and Universities.
Moore serves as the chairperson of the Board for McKinley Hall and is treasurer of the Ohio Community Higher Education Association. She joined Wittenberg’s SCE in 2001 and became dean in 2007. She is especially proud of the accomplishments of the students in SCED 400 (and the accompanying senior assessments) as well as the work of students in the @witt@/home-formatted classes, which she helped to develop. She also helps mentor students – especially those who are first-generation college students.
The director of physician recruitment of Community Mercy Health Partners since January 2008, Walters previously served as director of physician-hospital relations for four years. She graduated summa cum laude from Wittenberg University with a degree in organizational leadership in 2005 and will graduate with a master of administration in healthcare mission from Saint Thomas Aquinas Institute of Theology in May 2008.
Walters serves as president of the Advisory Board of Catholic Social Services in Springfield, and as a trustee of Catholic Charities USA, Southwestern Ohio. She is also a founding member of the Global Education and Peace Network.
The Global Education Speakers Series is sponsored by the Global Education and Peace Network, and the Clark County Public Library. The theme of this year’s series is “Think Globally, Act Locally.”
The Global Education and Peace Network organized in response to Study Circles, which discussed reactions and responses to the events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001. The 12 programs in the 2007-08 series include issues of local and global importance, and give citizens an opportunity to consider their role in a democracy to build a better world.
Wittenberg professors, alumni or administrators are involved in six of the presentations in the 2007-08 series. Professor of Religion and Director of Urban Studies Warren Copeland, also Springfield’s mayor, and Richele Shepard, class of 1996, were among four featured speakers in an Oct. 17 program titled “Revitalization: Bringing Springfield Into The Future Together.” Stephen Feagins, team physician of Wittenberg’s varsity athletics teams, was part of the Nov. 8 program titled “A Fall Symposium About Health Care.”
In addition, Associate Professor of Foreign Languages and Literature Christine McIntyre gave a presentation on immigration issues in the United States on Jan. 10, and Professor of Political Science and Director of East Asian Studies Bin Yu gave a presentation on United States-China relations on Feb. 14. In addition, Professor of Biology and Chair of the Department Tim Lewis is featured in an April 10 program titled “What’s Hot And What’s Not: Global Warming.”
