Savanna Melton

Marketing Director

“The splendour of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
-St. Thérèse of Lisieux


Since working in the marketing and public relations field, Savanna has learned the power of telling your story. Working across fields from TV news, to Habitat for Humanity, and for-profit marketing, she has told stories with the goal of seeing change happen. She now serves as Canongate’s Marketing Director and is passionate about telling the stories of our unique and communal school. When she is not sharing the Canongate experience with others, she is spending time with her husband and two daughters, hiking and exploring all that Western North Carolina has to offer.
