As part of Coordinators Appreciation Week (#CoordinatorsRock), we are highlighting our amazing Resource Coordinators who serve at four area middle schools: Asheville, Enka, Erwin and Owen. It is the job of each Resource Coordinator to foster and organize strong, impactful partnerships and ensure we are responding to the unique needs of their school and community.
Check out our other blog posts from earlier this week to learn more about all of our Resource Coordinators.
Amy Vanden Heuvel
Amy is the Resource Coordinator at Owen Middle School. She started in August of this year and is the first Resource Coordinator at Owen Middle. We asked some of her colleagues to share with us what they appreciate about Amy from their first several weeks of working with her:
"Amy is such a caring person with a wide range of abilities. We are very excited about all that she will bring to OMS! And her excitement is contagious. We are lucky to have her." Jim Lewis, Owen Middle School Principal
"I love how enthusiastic our Resource Coordinator is! She is really committed to helping our kids and families." Buffy Weathington, Owen Middle School Counselor
"I love Amy's enthusiasm and obvious desire to help the students and OMS community!!" Krista Langlois, Owen Middle School Teacher
"We appreciate Amy for her passion for her work and her ability to connect people. Her outgoing personality, friendliness and sense of community are great assets for the Owen District, and for UWABC. I have no doubt that she will enrich the lives of the students at Owen Middle School and help the Owen community become more connected and better resourced in a short period of time." Ben Moser, United Way ABC Director of Major Gifts
"Amy rocks because she brings so much excitement to the work at Owen Middle School. Every time anyone has an idea, Amy jumps in with how to get that resource or solve that problem. She brings a wealth of experience and energy to the team." Sarah Roth, United Way ABC Volunteer Engagement Manager
