As McCallie begins the 2017-18 school year, two current employees have moved into prominent roles working with parents and alumni to help enhance the McCallie experience for this special community. Dominique Gable will be the new Parent Programs Director while Amy Cloud becomes Alumni Relations Coordinator.
Dominique takes over McCallie's popular Parent Program nurtured by Jennifer McCall, who will be headed to Alpine Camp for Boys as their Office Manager. Dominique is no stranger to the McCallie community; her son Joshua graduated from McCallie in May and is now a first-year cadet at the U.S. Naval Academy. Dominique and her husband, Paul, also have a daughter, Cybelle, who is a freshman at GPS.
Dominique worked very closely with Jennifer before her departure, and she has already assumed her new responsibilities overseeing programs for Mothers of McCallie Men (MOMMs), True Blue Dads and the Nearly New resale store.
After two years spent helping cultivate support for McCallie from alumni, parents and friends of the school as Assistant Director of the Honor Fund, Amy Cloud has been named Alumni Relations Coordinator, replacing Sarah Moore who recently was named Director of Alumni Programming at Austin College in Sherman, Texas.
Amy's creativity, energy and passion for McCallie has been evident since her arrival on the Ridge 2015, and she was instrumental in growing the donor base of the Honor Fund — formerly the Annual Sustaining Fund. As Alumni Relations Coordinator, Amy will take on an even more active role with McCallie's alumni,
serving as a primary contact for graduates organizing outreach and events from coast-to-coast that help alumni stay connected to McCallie and enhance the lifelong relationships they built in their time on the Ridge.
A native of Norfolk, Virginia, Amy attended the University of Virginia, and received her master's degree in public administration from Old Dominion Un
iversity. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City and worked at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital on their capital campaign. While living and working in NYC, Amy earned a certificate in fundraising from New York University.
She and her husband, Mickey, moved to Chattanooga in 2015, and she also volunteers with the Chattanooga Junior League where she serves on their Fund Development Committee.
