Linda Moore, a Little Rock native who graduated from what was then Horace Mann High School in 1964, will be inducted into the National Alliance for Public Charter School's Hall of Fame on July 1 at the National Charter Schools Conference.

Moore is the founder and executive director of the Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., an elementary school named for Moore's mother.

The school started with 35 pupils in a church basement. It now serves 350 with a bilingual immersion program. Each child in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade is required to learn to speak, read, think and write in English and in either French or Spanish.

Others being inducted to the Hall of Fame include the Walton Family Foundation of Bentonville and Lisa Graham Keegan, the former Arizona state superintendent.
