After four years of leadership, Linsey McDaniel A'96 has decided to step down as Director of Alumnae/i Relations at Winchester Thurston School to pursue her dream of starting her own company. With bittersweet emotion, the WT community wishes her well, and is thrilled that she will continue to be involved in our community through support of Reunion 2017 and as a WT parent of daughter Amiel Robinson, a rising third grader.
WT is pleased to welcome Amiena Mahsoob as its new Director of Alumnae/i Relations. Amiena joins WT with a background in both education and advancement. Most recently, she worked in fundraising for Magee-Womens Research Institute and Foundation. Prior to that, she was the Director of Education Programs at the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, where she designed and implemented global education programs. Amiena began her career as an English teacher, working in both the United States and in Japan through the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program.
While at the World Affairs Council, Amiena was a City as Our Campus partner. She collaborated with WT faculty and staff in a variety of ways, from bringing international speakers to the school, to leading a study tour to the European Union. "Every encounter I have had with WT has demonstrated quality, commitment, and a passion for learning among students and teachers alike," she notes. "I am eager to gain a deeper sense of how this environment impacted alumnae/i vocations and avocations, and am excited to introduce new forms of alumnae/i engagement that build on this passion."
Alumnae/i, please don't hesitate to reach out to Amiena with your news, questions about Reunion, or to set up a time to meet in person. You can reach Amiena at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-578-7511.
