AARP founder Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, for whom the award is named, served as principal of Lincoln High School from 1916 to 1944. Moreno, who graduated from Lincoln in 1966, saw her speak while he was a student. "She visited for the school's 50th anniversary while I was a tenth grader in the spring of 1963," Moreno recalls. "She had a legacy even then."
