During her Noble visit last week, she stopped by Agnes Nowicki's room who eagerly welcomed Amelia and her dog, Diesel, a Norwich Terrier. Amelia noticed a Hotchkiss chair in Agnes' room and told Agnes that she was a Hotchkiss student.

Her husband is now deceased, but when Agnes had to select the few possessions she could bring with her to Noble, she chose the chair.
