Born in Mebane NC as a product of rape, Mr. Marrius "Moe" Pettiford had a lot to overcome.  He didn't know who his father was and felt he wasn't loved by his mother who was deaf and legally blind.  He could have allowed bitterness to eat his soul but embraced the spirit of his grandmother.  As a result, he has achieved academic excellence and is a respected presence in both counseling and education. 

Mr. Pettiford's story inspires youth that there is nothing they cannot achieve regardless of what they have experienced in life.  He is currently serving as Director of Student Support Services for the Alamance Burlington School System.  He is also the CEO of Theta Phi Psi Fraternity, Inc., an adolescent male mentoring program.  He is definitely deserving of a seat in our League of Extraordinary Men.
