The Danville Community College Alumni Association honored Don C. Moon, Liberty University’s chief financial officer and vice president for investment management, as one of its 2014 Outstanding DCC Alumni on April 11. The 15 honorees represented Danville Community College in Danville, Va., and its two predecessor institutions, Danville Technical Institute and Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Danville).
Moon graduated from DCC in 1975 and transferred to Virginia Tech, where he graduated in 1977 with a B.S. in finance.
He has worked at Liberty and its related ministries for more than 30 years, beginning as a financial manager for the “Old Time Gospel Hour” television program under Liberty’s founder, Dr. Jerry Falwell. Several years later, Moon took on the school’s growing financial management challenges, including overseeing the planning, implementation, management, and control of all financial-related activities for the university. He manages up to 10 direct reports and 200 employees in 10 finance- and investment-related departments.
In 2011, Moon was honored as one of the top financial officers for large nonprofit organizations in Virginia.
Moon is also serving his fourth term as an elected member on the Pittsylvania County School Board.
