Dr. Jim Moore Retirement

Auto Draft 50
Dr. Jim Moore, professor of music, had a surprise reception April 29 – the day he would have been in a reception for his retirement from Campbellsville University after 40 years. The reception would have been in the Betty Dobbins Heilman House (President’s Home), but, due to the coronavirus, could not be held. His wife, Nevalyn Moore, who also taught music at CU and who is retired, called her husband’s office and asked him to come to their house for a few minutes to help her with something. She surprised him with this menu: homemade chicken salad with pecans and grapes, a shrimp ring with cocktail sauce, stuffed eggs, baby carrots, grapes, freshly roasted pecans from Georgia, and, of course, “Mrs. Moore Brownies.” Nevalyn is famous for her personal “secret” brownie recipe. The music students always loved her brownies, and even, after she retired, they would pass along to new music majors her reputation as “the brownie lady.” She continued to make them for the annual fall School of Music picnic at the lake. She used real china and cut-glass serving bowls for her husband’s reception. Others retiring from CU this year are the Rev. Ed Pavy, campus minister, who was at CU from 1994 until June 2020 and Chris Mapes, who was director of financial aid and worked at CU from 2000 until March 2020.
