West Orange Scholarship Fund and West Orange Education Association Announce Fundraiser Recognizing Principal Hayden Moore

WEST ORANGE, NJ - West Orange High School Principal Hayden Moore will be recognized for 20 years of service to the West Orange School District at a cocktail reception on June 9 at Rock Spring Golf Club. The event is sponsored by the West Orange Scholarship Fund and the West Orange Education Association.

Moore has served as principal of the high school for the past ten years, beginning his career in special education. He entered WOHS as a Dean of Students and became principal in 2012 following the retirement of  Arthur Allogiamento. Since then, he has implemented very successful programming, including block-drop scheduling, expansion of  Advanced Placement courses, Technology and Engineering courses, sports and arts programs, and creation of the Mountaineer Mentor and Mountaineer Academy.  Several years ago, he initiated the Principal's Scholarship Fund to recognize graduating seniors who impacted the life and culture of the school through service. Funds raised at the cocktail reception will go towards that scholarship.

The reception will be held from 6:30 - 9:00 pm at Rock Spring Golf Club, 90 Rock Spring Road. Tickets are $60 with a cash bar and light fare. Space is limited. Tickets can be purchased at, and ad journal space is also available for purchase here. For additional information, contact WOSF trustee Jim Quinn at (212) 339-2548 or

"I am honored that the West Orange Scholarship Fund and West Orange Education Association have chosen to recognize me at their annual event," said Moore.

"I am proud to be the principal of West Orange High School: our students, staff, programs, and community are second to none, and I am excited to see that the Principal's Scholarship can be impacted in such a positive way," he concluded.
