Dear Staff & Faculty,

I’m pleased to share that Abby Kelso has agreed to serve as acting Vice President for Advancement following Amanda Walker’s departure this week.  Abby currently serves as Evergreen’s Associate Vice President for Advancement Operations with responsibility for foundation board governance, alumni engagement, annual giving, events, advancement finance and operations.  She previously worked as a high school physics teacher, soccer coach and college counselor. Abby earned a Bachelor of Arts & Science focused on physics and Latin American studies and a Master of Public Administration from Evergreen. 

Amanda has built an extraordinarily strong team in Advancement.  Both Abby and I are looking forward to working closely with the Foundation Board of Governors and the staff in Advancement to deepen the Evergreen’s connection to our many supporters.   We’ll have a celebratory virtual send-off for Amanda on Tuesday, August 3 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. (PDT).  Please look for a Zoom link by e-mail.


John Carmichael, PhD

Interim President
