PLATTSBURGH, NY. (WCAX) - New funding in Plattsburgh is directed at helping CV-TEC students.

The Moore Family in collaboration with the Adirondack Foundation donated $25,000 to the New Careers and Educational Pathways Fund.

CV-TEC staff says the cash will be used for CTE students’ scholarships and to provide students with the tools they need for their future careers. That could include things like a toolkit or a uniform or anything else that pertains to a specific job field.

George Moore’s grandson, Tanner Baraby, says his grandfather would be proud of the newly created fund.

“When my grandfather started the foundation, he started it to help people who did not have the same opportunities and I think that he would be proud today for us finding the pathway to do this,” said Baraby.

Baraby’s grandfather, George Moore, established Moore Recycling in Keeseville. The family also has their own foundation, known as the Moore Foundation, which was created in 2000.
