Amber Young

Day School Director

After 6 years as a Day School parent, Amber joined Forest Hills UMC as the Day School Director in August 2019. Amber became passionate about the Day School when she saw how much her daughter Alaina blossomed after she started there at age 2. Her younger daughter, Juliette, is a current student at the school and has been since she was an infant. Amber has also served as a church member and Treasurer on the Day School Board since January 2018. She believes that our Day School is a truly wonderful place for our children to grow, learn, and be loved in early childhood.
