Inaugural Winner of Christian Education Hero Award
Public School Exit
April 2, 2024

DEL MAR, Calif., April 2, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- E. Ray Moore, one of America's most respected advocates of biblical worldview education, has been honored with an award named after him, the E. Ray Moore Christian Education Hero Award. In a surprise announcement, this award was presented to both he and his wife as the inaugural winners.

The award was created by Public School Exit (PSE), a leading organization advocating for alternatives in K-12 education and recognizes Moore as a founding patriarch of the modern American educational liberty movement. Moore's wife, Gail Pinckney Moore, was recognized for her service as the founding matriarch.

The award was presented to the couple at PSE's luncheon event at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, on March 21st. Highlighted throughout the afternoon was the message that K-12 public education is failing American students, and it is time to exit.

E. Ray Moore serves as Chairman of the Board of Public School Exit. His background extends through almost 50 years in pastoral ministry as a campus pastor, a congregational minister, an Army Chaplain, or Director of a Christian ministry. A South Carolina native, he is a graduate of The Citadel with a B.A. in political science and was graduated from Grace Theological Seminary cum laude with a M.Div. (Master of Divinity) in 1974 and with a Th.M. (Master of Theology) in 1979. Moore is president of Frontline Ministries Inc. which focuses on prayer, revival and Christian education.

"Gail and I are grateful to Public School Exit for giving us this award and for creating it in my name, an award that will recognize contributions to Christian education," said Moore. "It was indeed a surprise and much appreciated coming from Public School Exit which has accomplished so much of our mutual vision in such a short time. Getting the children out of government schools and into the safe sanctuary of K-12 Christian education and home schooling has been our passion and calling for the last 30 years. We are now seeing the fulfillment of our longtime dream, the revival of Christian education, and it is very satisfying."

PSE Executive Director Alex Newman lauded the award recipient. "It is only fitting that this award be given to Ray Moore, a giant in the movement for educational liberty and the restoration of Christian education," he said. "Ray has been an inspiration to so many families. His impact will reverberate through history." Newman, an award-winning international journalist, educator, author and consultant has just released his latest book, Indoctrinating Our Children to Death.

Dran Reese, Chief Executive Officer of PSE, praised Moore for his unwavering commitment. "There is no one like Ray. He is a shining light for all of us to look up to and is thoroughly deserving of this inaugural award," she said.
