About Moses Middle

  • Lena Moses

    Moses Middle School is named after Paulding County alumna and teacher Lena Mae Moses. 

    Ms. Lena Moses was born April 8, 1917.  She witnessed the transformation from a small segregated town to an increasingly diverse suburb at a phenomenal rate. 

    She began her education in the Paulding County School System completing all eleven grades available to African American students.  Not to be outdone, she traveled to Atlanta to complete her twelfth grade year at Washington High School and finished at the top of her class.  Recognizing the need to continue her education to prepare for her chosen profession, she attended and graduated from Morris Brown College.  Upon her graduation, she became the first African American from Paulding to graduate from an institution of higher learning.  She continued to further her education at Atlanta University and New York University. 

    From 1945 to 1988, Ms Lena M. Moses was employed by the Paulding County School System.  During her forty-three year tenure, she taught in four schools (Zion Hill Church School, Old Mathews Consolidated, and Paulding County Junior High / Hershel Jones Middle School).  She took the same enthusiasm and dedication from the classroom to the Library / Media Center where she completed her career in education.  

    Although outstanding as an educator, her sphere of influence reached far beyond the schoolhouse doors into the church and community.  She was not only active in her home church, but found the time to visit and support other churches in the community.  Ms. Moses selflessly devoted her time and talents to many community organizations throughout the years.  These included the Paulding County Library Board, Tallatoona Board, and the Paulding County Health Board. 

    Lena Mae Moses passed away on August 2, 2013.
