Jere A. Moore, nephew of President Jeremiah Moore (1882-1902), served as Acting President from 1927 to 1928.  In 1927, the Board of Trustees decided to give President Gray a year of leave to restore his health.  The Board hired Jere Moore to fill Gray’s shoes for that brief time. Gray was unable to rest due to his worry of the college’s finances and spent his leave fundraising.
