Moore has been a member of PSBA since the association’s inception in 1980.

Even after leaving the presidency, Moore has remained active in the association, as an ex-officio member of the board of directors and as a member of several PSBA committees.
PSBA Past-President Randy Smith nominated Moore for this award. “Bill was the president of the association through a difficult time period in the 1990s. He has stayed active ever since, serving on numerous committees of the PSBA. He has supported the PSBA Safety Competition held each year in State College, serving as a judge on the railroad crossing. I consider him a good friend and mentor, and was proud to nominate him for the Bus Stops Here Award.”
