Be A Mentor Announces New Executive Director

APRIL 10TH, 2018 – NORTH CHARLESTON, SC - Be A Mentor, a non-profit children’s advocacy organization, is excited to announce the selection of Alexandra Moor as their new Executive Director. Moor took over the position Wednesday, April 4th, 2018.

For the last four years, Alexandra has worked directly with children and non-profit organizations in several capacities. Most recently, she was a registered behavior therapist with New Horizons Therapy which afforded her the opportunity to work directly with disabled children and their families. Prior to that position, Alexandra spent several years as an elementary school teacher at a Title One school in Laurens County, South Carolina.

"I am excited to continue the growth of an organization that has such a positive impact on the children of the Lowcountry and the community at large. So often children are labeled "at risk", but at Be A Mentor they are identified as "on the brink of success". This rhetoric of positive change and motivation reaches across all aspects of the organization and is a core value that I will keep as a priority," said Moor.

News of Moor’s selection as Executive Director was met with enthusiasm from the organization’s Board Members and staff.

“We are delighted to announce that Alex Moor will assume the role of Executive Director at Be A Mentor following the departure of Eileen Burkhardt in mid-April. Alex has a track record of working with children and we are excited by the passion and energy she brings to our mission,” said Be A Mentor’s Board of Directors Chairman Joe Waring.

Executive Director Alexandra Moor is available for interviews regarding her position and the organization. For press inquiries, media materials, and photographs, please contact Deja Knight at
