Claire was a Chorus teacher at Fountainebleau High School who strongly believed in music’s ability to reach any and every student in a unique way.
Several students over the years have said “Chorus is the ONLY reason I stayed in and completed high school!”. It was Claire’s wish that Choral Music programs in the tri-parish area be supported after her death.
To date, the Claire M. Moss Memorial Fund has provided over $250,000 to support music programs in the tri-parish area. Most recently, through the Community Foundation of Acadiana, I have taken measures to provide for the continued support of these programs even after my death.
As her brother, I am grateful and proud to be fulfilling her wish, and “keeping her flame alive”!
Thank you for your dedication to choral music teaching, and your appreciation for just how much it enriches the lives of your students and community!
