Mora Smith is a life long resident of Glace Bay. She is a graduate of Morrison Glace Bay High School and attended Acadia University to complete BA and BEd degrees, and later a MEd degree from St F X University. Mora and her husband, Jerry Murphy, made Glace Bay their home and together raised their three children; Sarah, Kendall, and Ellen. Mora has retired after thirty-three years as a teacher and school administrator with the Cape Breton Regional School Board. She is fortunate in that her children have chosen to, and are able to, raise their families in Glace Bay. This has served to make her keenly aware of the importance of maintaining the high standard of health care in Glace Bay. She believes that as a member of the Glace Bay Hospital Charitable Foundation Board she can work with community members toward that end, and perhaps even grow services provided. "Being able to maintain a health care facility and services in Glace Bay is important to those who have continued to live in our community, but also is needed to encourage others to remain in Glace Bay area, or to make this part of our Island their home."
