Rush Springs’ Luke Moore – Canadian Valley Technology Center Athlete of the Month

By Derrick Smith

The Canadian Valley Technology Center gives students the opportunity to get a hands-on look at the field of their interest. Luke Moore has felt a pull towards a medical career, and thanks to CV Tech, he is able to get a head start on his future career.

“I am taking health careers,” he said. “I decided to take this class because I knew it would really help out with what I’m going to do after high school. For most of my life, I have had this calling to the medical field but I didn’t want to be a regular doctor, so I chose to be a chiropractor.”

Luke is a senior at Rush Springs High School. He says that he had heard about Canadian Valley before but never thought about attending until recently. “I heard about it and what it offered a long time ago, but I wasn’t really interested until last year.”

After he graduates from Rush Springs and Canadian Valley, Moore knows what his next steps will be towards his career goal.

“After high school, I plan to attend Oklahoma City Community College or Rose State to obtain my basics,” he said. “Then I will go to Parker University in Dallas, Texas to major in Chiropractic.”

Canadian Valley is a place that Moore would definitely recommend to those that are thinking about it.

“CV Tech is a great choice,” he said. “It has been a really great experience for me. It has brought me closer to a lot more people and really gets you out of your comfort zone.”

At Rush Springs, Luke is a member of the basketball, baseball, and football teams. His favorite part of competing is winning and having fun. There are three people that have made a big impact on Moore’s life; Caitlyn Long, Kyle Foster, and Tell Cross.

“They are always positive in everything they did,” he said. “They were all three great athletes and amazing people. They helped me through my junior year at Rush Springs and they became my really close friends.”
