Grace Graduate News – Cameron Moore

At Grace Lutheran School, we take pride in our alumni and their accomplishments. Today, we spotlight Cameron Moore, a distinguished Grace graduate who has made impressive strides in his academic and professional journey.

Cameron’s story with Grace Lutheran began in Pre-K and continued until his 8th grade graduation in 2011. His time at Grace was marked by active participation in numerous extracurricular activities, including volleyball, basketball, track, and the hand bell strike team. Cameron fondly remembers how these experiences allowed him to connect with students from different grades, fostering a sense of community and camaraderie.

One pivotal moment during his time at Grace was when he landed the lead role in the school play in 4th grade. For a mostly shy student, this was a life-changing experience, helping him to step out of his comfort zone and boosting his confidence significantly. “It was the first time I had ever done something like that,” Cameron reminisces, “and it made such a huge impact on me.” This is precisely the kind of personal growth we cherish at Grace Lutheran School.

Cameron holds dear the memories of his teachers, particularly Mr. Schultz and Ms. Wolfanger, both of whom are still inspiring and teaching students at Grace. Ms. Wolfanger’s passion for history undoubtedly influenced Cameron’s decision to minor in this subject during his college years. Such lasting impressions highlight the enduring impact our educators have on their students.

Another memorable highlight from his time at Grace was the 7th-grade volleyball team making it to state. This achievement was particularly thrilling for Cameron, as he had never played volleyball before. His coach, Ms. Carioscio, played a significant role in this accomplishment. Interestingly, Ms. Carioscio’s husband, Mr. Carioscio, is currently serving as our interim principal. This is a testament to the lasting ties that students and staff form at Grace.

After leaving Grace, Cameron attended Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRF). His entire educational experience up to that point was at Grace, a small school especially compared to OPRF. Cameron assures that Grace prepared him, and he was ready to enter this new and different phase of life. He then went on to Denison University, where he graduated in 2019 with a major in Economics and a minor in History. He was recently spotlighted in Denison Magazine, an article which we encourage you all to read here.

In January, Cameron embarked on the next phase of his academic career by starting an MBA program at the University of Chicago. Balancing work and study, he is pursuing his degree part-time.

Currently, Cameron is back in Chicago, working with S&P Global on their commercial real estate team. This role allows him to apply his academic knowledge in a practical setting, further honing his expertise in the field.

We are incredibly proud of Cameron Moore and all our alumni who continue to embody the spirit and values of Grace Lutheran School. Congratulations, Cameron, on all your achievements! We look forward to seeing where your journey takes you next.
