Alyssa Moore’s “Life Changing Experience” by Sandy McBride

It was just eight days in her young life, but for Alyssa Moore those eight days were a “life-changing experience”.  In early January, Alyssa traveled to the Dominican Republic with a team of medical people and fellow students from Clarkson University to set up a clinic and provide care to villagers who do not routinely receive any medical care at all.

Alyssa, the daughter of Bob and Valerie Moore, grew up in Mechanicville along with kid sister Aubrey.  Graduating from Mechanicville High School fifth in her class in 2006, she was a National Honor Society member who had been honored as a Top Six student each year of junior high and high school.  Alyssa was the catcher on Mechanicville’s 2005 New York State Class C Champion softball team, and was presented with the Sportsmanship Award for the state tournament.
