Who was Delores M. Moye?
Delores M. Moye was a retired O'Fallon school teacher who taught in the District for 32 years.
Mrs. Moye knew she wanted to be a teacher at a very early age. She taught Kindergarten for four
years and then second grade for 28 years. Mrs. Moye retired in 1992 after teaching 1,393
students. She has now joined the ranks of four of her teachers, Marie Schaefer, LaVerna Evans,
Estelle Kampmeyer and Edward Fulton who all have O'Fallon schools named in their honor. When
asked about this honor, Mrs. Moye told the O'Fallon Progress, "I don't think there is an adjective to
describe how I feel. I am just overwhelmed by it." In the picture above, Mrs. Moye graciously accepted
roses and spoke briefly, but elequently at the school's dedication ceremony.
