Amy Zesch grew up in San Antonio. She graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1981 and then attended the University of Texas at Austin, earning an MBA and an MA in Communications. After a short career producing and directing instructional media, Amy married Hal and became mom to his two daughters, then 9 and 7. Within a few years a son and another daughter were born and their family was complete.
Except for a year’s employment with First Presbyterian Church as Interim Director of Children’s Ministry, Amy’s energy has been devoted to family and community. She has volunteered with the Junior League of San Antonio and San Antonio Youth Literacy, and has served on the boards of Mission Road Ministries and the Landa Gardens Conservancy. At First Presbyterian Church Amy has completed two rotations as an elder, chairing and working on numerous committees. Additionally, she has been president of Presbyterian Women and a discussion leader for Bible Study Fellowship. Currently Amy teaches preschool one day a week at Children’s Day Out.
Amy is especially proud of her work on the Keystone PTO. Drawing upon years of experience with PTOs in the Northside and Alamo Heights school districts she helped shape what was, at the time, an “infant” Keystone PTO. While on the Parent Council Amy set up and administered the PTO’s first balanced budget, proposed and then produced the early issues of KeyNotes, and chaired the committee that drafted the PTO’s current by-laws. “I am honored by the opportunity I now have to support and impact the best school in San Antonio as a member of the Board of Trustees!”
