Love isn’t the only “Good Thang” from St. Louis native Willie Moore Jr.. Mentoring and motivating the next generation of men is another Moore passion.
The McCluer South-Berkeley (now STEAM Academy at McCluer-South Berkeley) alum has partnered with the Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation on a mentorship program.
Moore shared the big news on Instagram.
“My word for this year is COMPLETE,” Willie wrote alongside a screenshot of the announcement, “I’m so grateful for the power of partnership. This weekend I have the chance to announce that we will bring knowledge and wisdom to young boys throughout this Father’s Day weekend.
Moore, also known as “Pretty Willie” and “P-Dub”, is a Grammy and Stellar Award nominated artist, author, host of the weekly nationally broadcast radio show, “The Willie Moore Jr. Morning Show”. He graduated from the University of Mississippi with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Moore, who was a foster and later adopted child, is a strong advocate for foster families and adoption. Through his organization, the WILFLO Foundation Inc., he raises awareness of adoption through school programs, scholarships, and more. He released his autobiographical documentary about his adoption story last year with “The Missing Peace” project.
He and his wife Patricia reside in Atlanta with their four children.
