Bluefield City Board Honors BSU Chancellor Garry Moore

Bluefield City Board Honors BSU Chancellor Garry Moore
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on November 25, 2022

The Bluefield City Board of Directors has honored the Reverend Garry Moore for his service to the city, the region, and Bluefield State University. Moore recently became the first Chancellor in BSU’s 127-year history.

At its November 22 meeting, Board Vice Mayor Peter Taylor read, then presented to Moore, a resolution that recognized for his 32 years of service as pastor of Scott Street Baptist Church in Bluefield, his quarter-century of service to Bluefield State, and his civic service as a former mayor and member of the city’s Board of Directors.



After receiving the resolution, Moore said, “I thank you for the honor. I am just praying that, with the City of Bluefield and Bluefield State University, we can help Bluefield become a place of destination where people really want to come and live, matriculate and get their degrees, then get jobs and careers.”

Moore, the first Chancellor in Bluefield State University’s history, received a resolution citing his service to church, community, and BSU.
