Moira Long, Massachusetts – 2021
This inductee has embraced the essence of the Northeast New Agenda’s mission of advocating for girls and women in sport as witnessed by the many professional commitments she has made during her career.
Moira is a graduate of Marist College and received her masters degree from Springfield College in 1997. Recognizing the positive influences that athletics can have, she began her career as an advocate for girls and women in sports.

“I take seriously my responsibility to help guide all girls and women I coach and teach them to have a strong vote, to not accept less than men, and to be agents of change in society.”
