Greg Moffitt '12
In this video, Moffitt shares his unique perspective of Randolph-Macon.
Professor Donna Turney has played an important role in the life of Randolph-Macon College student
Greg Moffitt ’12
“Professor Turney helped me to realize my interest in philosophy,” says Moffitt. “I took one of her classes, and, after some further conversation, she encouraged me to major in
. When I informed her of my aspirations—to ultimately teach philosophy at the college level—she offered me the opportunity to teach one of her classes. That experience was quite successful, and the students seemed very engaged and interested.”
Moffitt, who is also majoring in
, is the recipient of scholarships from the National Federation of the Blind of Virginia as well as the Lions Club. He is also a recipient of
R-MC’s Presidential Scholarship
“The Presidential Scholarship is just more evidence of the commitment that R-MC has to ensuring education to all students who seek it, as this scholarship substantially eases the financial burden of attending college,” says Moffitt.
Moffitt is an associate member of Ruritan National, a civic service organization made up of local clubs in urban areas, small towns and rural communities. In fall 2011 he volunteered at a fundraiser that his local chapter held in King George County, Virginia.
“I like being a Ruritan because through the organization I can serve my community,” says Moffitt.
On campus, he served in 2008 as president of the R-MC chapter of the College Republicans, and in 2011 he was a member of the college’s Pre-Law Society. He is also a talented musician.
“My parents first learned about my musical ability when, at three years old, I was able to hum the
theme song,” says Moffitt. “They enrolled me in piano lessons, which I took until I was 18.” At R-MC, Moffitt wanted to further develop and cultivate his
, and in spring 2011 he took a semester of piano.
“This year, I wanted more of a challenge, so I took two semesters of organ with Professor Doering, which I thoroughly enjoyed,” he says. Moffitt, who plays music for his hometown church, has also performed in concerts at various venues, including Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church.
In 2010 Moffitt did a summer
in King George County, where he worked for the Commonwealth’s Attorney.
“I arranged the internship by writing to the Commonwealth Attorney’s office,” he says. “At the time I was planning on attending law school. As an intern, I primarily observed court cases. I got to hear all kinds of cases, from traffic court to an extradition case.”
Moffitt, who is this year’s Student Commencement Speaker, plans on attending graduate school beginning in 2013.
“I am looking at several programs, including George Mason University and Penn State University,” he says.
