Jennifer Mooney Greene
Jennifer Mooney Greene was a beloved English teacher at Green Run High School before passing away in 2013 from an illness. She was born in Point Pleasant, N.J. and lived in Virginia Beach. She graduated from Old Dominion University magna cum laude. Jen loved teaching, counseling her students and serving as Green Run’s debate coach and assistant girls track coach. She was particularly proud of her debate team and the students that earned college scholarships because of their debating skills. Jen was also the founder and director of the Achievement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program at Green Run High. AVID helps students who might not otherwise have access to college. Jen’s sister, brother and parents created the scholarship in her memory, which was supported by numerous memorial donations from her family and friends. The scholarship supports AVID students from Green Run or other public high schools in Virginia Beach.
