The library at the new Fayetteville High School has been named in honor of one of its students in a dedication ceremony on Saturday (May 3).

The library was named after Matthew William Moore for his involvement with the school and a contribution from his parents. The library also included an unveiling of a statue of Moore.

“It’s just so moving to see such a beautiful piece of architecture dedicated to him as a memory,” said Jason Moore, Matthew’s brother, “His high school was really important to him and reading was really important to him and he loved Fayetteville High School, so it`s really a beautiful 20 year full circle of that.”

Moore died in a car accident in 1991 just before his May graduation.
