At the Jan. 12 boys basketball game in Cuba City, Cindy Moor was pulled from working at the concession stand between the varsity reserve and varsity games to hear who was this year’s nominee for the Wisconsin Athletic Director’s Association Distinguished Service Award. She wasn’t expecting to see her family walk out on the court as they named her for this year’s award.
“It’s always nice to be able to recognize someone for their tireless efforts, time and leadership qualities, especially when what they do is on a volunteer basis,” Jeff Pustina, athletic director at Cuba City Schools, said. “Which is what the Wisconsin Athletic Directors Association Distinguished Service award is all about: someone giving those qualities to their respective school’s athletic department.”
Pustina said every spring at the head coaches meeting they discuss candidates for the WADA service award, and last spring the coaches voted unanimously for Moor to receive the award.
She has volunteered more than 10 years to the Cuba City Booster Club and is the current booster club president. Her leadership has been a driving force to help the school’s athletic department in many ways: many athletic facilities upgrades, team equipment and helping the coaches and players succeed.
“One of our booster club members did a little research and gave me this statistic: Cindy has worked the Booster Club auctions, concessions and meal fundraisers over the past 10 years to help raise a conservative total dollar amount of around $340,000,” Pustina said. “Whether it’s for her parish, prom, lead parent or just putting together locker decorations, Cindy is definitely someone you want on your team.”
The gym floor was filled with athletes, coaches and the athletic department to recognize Moor as the 2017 Distinguished Service Award recipient.
