Anne calhoun

Board Chair

Hello friends!  My name is Anne Calhoun and I am a librarian/teacher in the Anaconda School District.  My husband Bob and I live in Anaconda with our daughter Ada, our great dane, two cats, and our exchange students.  

I have been involved with ACI as a worker bee, a coalition member, and a board member.  I love the programming that ACI provides, whether it is bringing in speakers to motivate students and educate parents, all the way to NERF Wars–all programs that help provide our community with education and options for making healthy choices.  If I had to pick my favorite part of ACI it would be a tie between the skills students learn, the amazing people I have met and get to work with, and the fun we are constantly having!  Please join us in activities, as a coalition member, or just for a meeting to see what we are about!

I have been with ACI for 9 years. I joined because I saw a place I could help encourage positive activity and action in the youth of the community.
