Amy Chastain named interim director of alumnae relations

amy-chastain_headshot-for-web.jpgAmy Chastain has been named Agnes Scott College’s interim director of alumnae relations, effective September 1, 2018. Amy’s interim appointment will fill the vacancy created by Kim Vickers as she transitions to her new role as associate vice president of advancement with New College of Florida.

Amy joined Agnes Scott as associate director of alumnae relations in 2015 bringing a diverse array of experiences in nonprofit program development, community relations and event planning. In her role as associate director of alumnae relations, Amy has provided leadership and support to several initiatives designed to strengthen the college’s commitment to alumnae engagement, something she looks forward to continuing as interim director.

“My daughter graduated from a women's college and I was able to see what an incredibly positive impact that setting had on her,” says Chastain. “I believe in the power of women to change the world for the better, and I am honored to support an institution that contributes to that legacy.”

A life-long member of Decatur Presbyterian Church with children who are fifth generation Decaturites, Amy’s roots run deep in Decatur and with Agnes Scott College. Her great-great-aunts Harriet Milledge (class of 1908) and Rosa Milledge (class of 1909) were among the first teachers in the City Schools of Decatur.  
Amy earned her bachelor’s degree in education from Western Carolina University. She and her husband Wes have two children, Eliza, who lives and works in Greenville helping people overcome eating disorders, and McNichol, a tenth grader at Decatur High School who is involved in theater and band and soon will receive his Eagle Scout award.

Additionally, the Alumnae Association is happy to welcome Logan Arrowood and Pilar Ramos-Nuñez ’12.

Logan Arrowood is the Alumnae Relations Coordinator and comes to Agnes Scott with a strong background in event planning and nonprofit development from the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta and the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Ga. At the Center for Puppetry Arts he quickly moved through the ranks from development assistant to event and facility rentals coordinator to development manager. While at the Center, Logan managed String Fling, their annual fundraising gala, and worked closely with board members and other leadership volunteers. Logan earned his bachelor’s degree in fine and studio arts from Columbus State University and he enjoys baking, traveling, and his two cats Moose and Patches.

Pilar Ramos-Nuñez ’12 is providing temporary support to alumnae relations through Alumnae Weekend 2019. She comes to Agnes Scott with experience in personnel management and logistics for large-scale disaster response from the U.S. Coast Guard and user experience research from BB&T. A commissioned officer in the Coast Guard, Pilar earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Agnes Scott and her master’s degree in applied experimental psychology from Augusta University. She looks forward to engaging with all of her fellow Scottie Sisters.
