About George H. Moody

George H. Moody

For nearly thirty-eight years, Dr. George H. Moody served the citizens of Henrico County as a teacher, principal, and finally, as superintendent for over 13 years.  In 1951 he became the first principal of a newly opened Hermitage High School, where he served until being promoted to superintendent in 1956.  On August 31, 1978, George H. Moody was honored with a great educational accolade.  Hermitage Middle School, previously Hermitage High School, changed its name to George H. Moody Middle School – a great hallmark in the life of a dedicated educator.  Mr. Moody was a humble man, from humble beginnings, and is worthy of remembrance for leaving an indelible mark as an educator, a leader, and as a humanitarian in Henrico County.
