Moore will be honored as one of Michigan Chronicle’s “Men of Excellence” at the Induction Ceremony on June 7, 2013 at the Westin Book Cadillac, 1114 Washington Boulevard, Detroit, 48226.  The Michigan Chronicle “Men of Excellence” awards celebrate local African-American men who motivate and inspire others through their vision and leadership, exceptional achievements, and participation in community service. The honorees chosen represent a diverse group of men who have demonstrated success within their profession and industry, and are positive role models whose contributions encourage others.

Helping Small Business Succeed…One County at a Time campaign.  Moore pledged to visit every county in the state within three years and the Countdown to 83! Campaign includes the final ten counties.
