Amanda Gramlich, Director

Amanda joined the Eagles Nest Board of Directors in May, 2024. I was born and raised in Chauvin and moved to Edgerton last spring with my fiancé Joe, our two young kids and two dogs. I am a residential drafter by trade and work for Beaver Homes and Cottages - Lloydminster Home Hardware. I keep busy with work and our kids who are now getting more into sports and extra curriculars. We enjoy getting together with friends and camping in the summer months.

Both of our kids attend the daycare and our oldest has been going to Little Eagles Pre-K this past school year. We are very thankful for the Eagles Nest and Little Eagles programs and I look forward to being a part of the board. I appreciate all of the hard work and dedication it has taken for all involved to get the program where it is today. I hope to contribute in keeping the momentum going, along with adding a fresh perspective and some new ideas!

Cassie Manning, Director

Cassie joined the Eagles Nest Board in May, 2024. I have lived in Edgerton for the last 5 years. I have 2 wonderful kids and 2 bonus kids. Between them, working casually and volunteering with a few organizations in the community I always seem to stay busy! I joined the Eagles Nest Board to help support the programs that we are so fortunate to have, and that my youngest will utilize in the fall as she heads off to “big eagles” play school. I look forward to the year ahead!
