When Darla Moore began business school at George Washington University, she said she “didn’t know what a balance sheet was.” After graduating with her MBA, she began work in banking in New York City and eventually became one of the nation’s most successful business leaders. She was the first woman on the cover of Fortune magazine and was listed as one of Fortune’s “50 Most Powerful Women in Business.” University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business was the first business school in the U.S. to be named after a woman. As part of what she calls a 30-year plan, Darla Moore is now transforming Lake City, her home town. Her latest investment is a collaboration among her foundation, Francis Marion University, Florence/Darlington Tech and school districts.
