Sarah Moore Greene watched as pupils of a Knoxville school named in her honor filed into the gym to commemorate her 100th birthday. “They are the HOPE of the world,” she said, as black and white youngsters at the elementary school took seats on bleachers and on the wooden floor. “It is up to adults to train and build up children,” the retired kindergarten teacher and principal said. “If you make a child think you are interested in them, it changes their outlook.” That training is what Sarah Moore Greene spent her life doing and fighting for. She HOPES other educators continue that work.
