Congratulations Bernadette Moore!
Bernadette Moore (“Binky” as she is affectionately known) has been the face of Elk Rapids Schools for many years. Binky first started with the district in the food service department of Lakeland Elementary in 1978. Binky then transitioned to attendance secretary at the high school for the 1988-89 school year and served in that capacity until 2005.
She brought a caring, warm, and helpful attitude to her job. The students knew they could not get anything past her – and they also knew she was a person they could come to with any problem. She brought a “family” feeling to her job and treated the students as if they were her own. She was a second mom to many. The parents were confident and thankful that Binky was there to help look after their children and welcome them with a smile.
Binky also assists the athletic department with ticket sales for entry to each sporting event. She has always been happy to step up when called upon, and has continued to assist in that capacity for the past 20 years.
She is the first smiling person to welcome our visitors when they attend sporting events. She is great with kids, our community and visiting guests. Some would say she’s “a fixture of the district”, and she is also a long-time volunteer at her church.
Binky continues to be a positive influence on everyone she meets. You cannot help but walk away with a smile and chuckle after talking with her.
