Amy (Ostermiller) Schulte has only been in Butte for a relatively short period of time. She has, however, already left her mark on her new hometown.

Schulte is an assistant coach with the Butte High track program. She brings the knowledge that helped her win three Class B State championships while competing for Shepard High School.

Amy won the discus in 2009. As a senior, she won the discus and shot put, breaking school records that stood for 30 years.

Amy competed in track at Montana State before graduating with degrees in marketing and economics. She owns a couple of businesses Moonlight Marketing and Events, and White Lavender.

The latter is a store that is an online store that is perfect for anyone looking to have some fun at a bachelorette party.

She also founded Graceful Gowns, which she calls her “passion project.”

Graceful Gowns has collected around 600 dresses for area high school girls to check out and rent for free so, as Amy says, they can feel beautiful when they go to their dances.

She said she did that as an outlet as she came to terms with her diagnosis with alopecia, a disease that led to her losing her hair.

Today’s conversation took place at the Coaches Corner at Metals Sports Bar & Grill. Listen in to hear Amy talk about her passion project and the rise in awareness of alopecia. Listen to her talk about her love of track and how working with young athletes is her daily vacation during the track season.

Listen as she talks about meeting her husband, Luke Schulte, on Tinder and the crazy happenings at her wedding reception.
