Alumni Board of Directors

Gould Academy’s Alumni Board is made up of 12 members – representing classes from 1967 through 2012. Our mission is to foster lifelong relationships between Gould Academy and its alumni. We do this by hosting events both on and off campus, connecting alumni with each other as well as current students and faculty, and facilitating communications between Gould and its alumni. Find us on Facebook and Instagram.

We seek candidates for the Alumni Board each year, so if you are interested in learning more about our work, please contact Amy Connell at 207-824-7762.

Engagement Officer
B.A. Saint Michael’s College


Mrs. Connell joined Gould in July of 2017. She brings with her a wealth of experience having held positions in Alumni Relations at both Hebron Academy and Bates College. Prior to her jobs at both schools, Mrs. Connell worked in fine wine sales in New York and Maine. Additionally, her passion for the arts led her to Boston for a position at the Museum of Fine Arts as well as an assistant directorship at a community art center in Newton, MA.

A native of Western New York’s “Snowbelt,” Mrs. Connell loves Maine’s long winters. Whether it’s riding Sunday River’s Magic Carpet with her daughter or chasing her husband down the slopes, she can be found outside enjoying the white stuff. And when the seasons change, she enjoys hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

Mrs. Connell resides in beautiful Bethel with her husband, Rogan, and their young daughter, Elinor.
