Robert Moyer has been promoted to the position of regional director of student retention for Career Quest Learning Centers. In this position, he is responsible for working with students to overcome whatever obstacle might be keeping them from achieving their educational goals, which could include tutoring, transportation, childcare, housing, nutrition or something else.
Moyer says that while his ultimate goal is to help students succeed in the classroom so they can go on to succeed in their careers, their biggest challenges often aren’t at school. “We understand that when there are other stressors in their lives, they can’t concentrate on school,” he says. “So we do what we can to alleviate anxiety so they can focus back on school. Our students all come here for a purpose and those who are able to try hard and stick it out will go on to bigger and better things.”
Moyer has worked in education since 2008, with experience as an adjunct faculty member at Davenport University and as a science teacher at Bay-Arenac Community High School. Before joining CQLC in 2016, he worked as an account manager for Central Michigan University Research Corporation. He also has more than 20 years of coaching experience at all levels from youth to Olympic and professional.
He earned his BA in health and society from the University of Rochester, his MSS in sports medicine and coaching from the United States Sports Academy and his teaching certificate from Saginaw Valley State University.
Moyer volunteers as a mentor for the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce Youth Leadership Program and as a fundraiser for the Bay County Historical Society.
