Dr. Cecilia May Moreno ‘83

“Persistence, when it benefits others, is the best persistence.”

Dr. Cecilia May Moreno

Dr. Cecilia May Moreno ‘83, MBA
Carrizo Springs Consolidated ISD

At “sweet sixteen,” many girls are planning a party and dreaming of a night filled with fun and memories. At sixteen, with her parent’s blessing but no one to take her, Dr. Cecilia Moreno made the uncharted trip to north Texas to begin her first semester in college at Texas Woman’s University. That bus trip began a life-long journey into higher education. By the time she was 19, she was already fully certified by the state as a high school teacher.

Moreno credits her loving husband with providing much support for her educational endeavors, which have included receiving her MBA in accounting, review courses to prepare for the CPA exam, and her doctorate. With parents who only received an elementary level education due to sacrifices they needed to make for their families, Moreno truly values the opportunities she has been given. An educator for 41 years, her belief in the pursuit of higher education makes her work to encourage students to do their best. She also works to inspire educational professionals to push the limits of learning in their classrooms.
