Amy Harbarger

Volunteer Coordinator/Office Manager
(256) 428-9404

Amy was born in Montgomery, Alabama but considers Alexander City her hometown, having moved there at age 10. After graduating from Auburn University, marrying Huntsville native David Harbarger, and having three sons, Amy found her niche in volunteering. It became evident after many years with PTAs and other community organizations that volunteers are the bedrock of a city and community. Since 2013, Amy has volunteered with CWJC as part of the Circles Luncheon planning committee and as a member of the Board of Directors. When a part time job opened up at CWJC as Volunteer Coordinator, the timing seemed right! First Baptist Huntsville is her church home where Amy teaches 5th grade Sunday School. Her favorite activities include being with her family (which doesn’t happen often since two kids are at Auburn), reading, spending time with friends, and watching British dramas on PBS!
