After 35 years of service at Seoul Foreign School, our beloved faculty member Jack R. Moon has retired from his current role as the Director of Alumni Relations. Jack’s dedication and love for the school has been instrumental in influencing so many students’ lives both in and out of the classroom. He is a man centered in Christ, full of character, integrity and an inspiration.

As he moves onto his next chapter in life, he would like to leave a legacy at SFS by establishing the Jack R. Moon Biology Scholarship. We hope you will take this opportunity to honor Jack’s service and help continue to support his passion for Biology for generations to come.

“When I made my decision to be an educator, I wanted to share my love and passion for life with my students and instill in them the need to live responsibly in the world, caring for both our environment and for those who are in need of our support and care. The classroom was the perfect place for my calling.

It allowed for instruction, debate, research, analysis and synthesis – focused under the school’s mission statement to be centered in Christ. It was a joy and a privilege to have participated in the lives of so many wonderful and capable students during my time at Seoul Foreign School and it is my hope that this legacy will be upheld in the years to come.”
