Tiger Tracker: Stacy (Martin) Moore

Special to the Daily

Current career: IT project manager

Year graduated: 1995

Stacy Moore, formally known as Stacy Martin, is a 1995 graduate of Summit High School. She attended Summit schools from third grade until graduation. Moore is the daughter of the Martins, who are long-time locals. Her mother Debbie is a preschool teacher and her father is an office operations manager at the Eisenhower tunnel.

While in school, Moore was president of the National Honor Society and enjoyed coordinating community service events and high school volunteers. She was the editor of Tiger Tracks — the high school newspaper then printed by the Summit Daily News — which she called an “extraordinary experience in leadership.” She said she enjoyed working on the paper because she was able to learn outside of the classroom.

“It was a really successful, alternative form of learning,” she said.

Moore’s first real job – at the age of 16 – was as a production artist for the Summit Daily, where she would come in after school and physically cut and paste together the copy and ads. She stayed with the paper through its switch from manual to electronic. Moore said it was through the Summit Daily News that she discovered her two loves: communications and technology.

After high school graduation Moore attended the University of Colorado at Denver, where she earned a BA in writing and an MS in technical communications. She is also a certified project manager professional. Moore now lives in downtown Denver with her husband Aaron Moore, whom she met on his first day of work at the Summit Daily while she was still in high school. They kept in touch and were married after her college graduation. They have a basset hound and their first little one is on the way. They are both avid snowboarders, and love to travel.

Moore now works as an IT Project Manager at Denver Public Schools (DPS). She runs projects that maintain the technical infrastructure for about 75,000 users in the Denver community, which includes teachers, students, parents, administrators and the community. DPS has one of the largest computer networks managed within the State of Colorado. Moore said her job is very rigorous, but she enjoys the many aspects of her daily work.

Moore said her favorite memories from Summit High include working on the paper, going to the Special Olympics at Copper Mountain, and being voted class clown of her senior class. She said she loved bringing fun to everything she did, and still does.

Moore said she loved growing up in Summit County because of the close-knit community, and is still known around Frisco as Miss Debbie’s daughter.
