Annual gifts are the heart and soul that drive innovation in the classroom, for every student. Tuition dollars alone do not cover the cost of an All Saints education. Helping bridge the gap are gifts made each and every year by our All Saints community for immediate needs and essential programs.
Every gift no matter how big or how small makes a difference in a child’s education. Thank you for investing in our students.
NINE FACULTY MEMBERS TO RETIRE; PURSUE OTHER INTERESTS AT END OF SCHOOL
To spend more time with family is the number one reason nine faculty members will say goodbye to All Saints when school dismisses. Patti Frullo, Sally Larkins, Vicki Denny, Ann Thompson, Melissa Wafer-Cross, Bob Stuart, Judy Briggs, J.T. Seymore, and Grace Eslinger are retiring or pursuing other interests.
They all agree that the success of All Saints is because of the Christian environment and strength of the parents, students, and teachers to form a united community. “All Saints' greatest strengths are the strong family community, the care the faculty has for the students and their willingness to do whatever needs to be done to support the students,” Mrs. Patti Frullo said. “There are so many wonderful memories that I cherish with the students, faculty, and families. I will always remember how we take care of each other here; any time someone needs help, we help each other.”
Assistant Head of School and High School Division Head Patti Frullo will move to Dallas and begin a new career as Assistant Head of School of Lakehill Preparatory School. In doing so, she will be closer to her two sons and sister who live in the area. Mrs. Frullo has been at All Saints for 19 years, with the first four years as a parent and volunteer. She has held a variety of positions at the school from bookstore manager, to science teacher, to math teacher, to assistant head of school and her favorite position - high school division head. “I love the students, especially the past few years I have absolutely loved working with high school students,” Mrs. Frullo said. “I love them like they are my own. Seeing the seniors graduate is so special to me knowing that we have helped them prepare for college is such a blessing.”
“I'm leaving because I need time to do the things on my bucket list,” Middle School Division Head Sally Larkins said. “I have fun plans for my life. I will audit a class on the Constitution (Con Law) this fall at the Tech Law School and one on Rules of Evidence in the spring,” she said. “I am joining the CBS Bible study group; I am going to grow lettuce and tomatoes (of course I have never grown anything before and I usually kill every flower or plant but ...); and Sim [her husband] and I are going to swim at the Y every morning. Further down the road, we plan to spend some time on the Isle of Capri (my favorite place to visit) and time at our place in Ruidoso.” Mrs. Larkins has been at All Saints for six years.
PLC Division Head Vicki Denny began her career 14 years ago at All Saints as a pre-first teacher then transitioning into a kindergarten teacher and division head. She has taught for 34 years; 20 years in Borger and then 14 at ASES. “I plan to travel, spend time with my two grandchildren, stay at my cabin in New Mexico more often, and help my husband with his real estate business,” she said.
Ann Thompson has been teaching Middle School Math at All Saints for 20 years. She is retiring her 52 year career as a math educator in both private and public schools at the middle school, high school, and collegiate levels to spend more time with family. “I plan to travel, be with my husband, sit on my back porch, and read,” Thompson said.
After returning to All Saints in 2016 as a Junior English teacher, Mrs. Melissa Wafer-Cross is retiring for the second time to spend more time with family and to travel. Mrs. Cross taught Middle School English in the 1990’s at All Saints and then moved to high school English at Lubbock High until she retired in 2015.
Bob Stuart has been at All Saints in the Institutional Advancement office for 10 years. “I plan to follow my boys' adventures and travel with my wife, Lisa,” Stuart said. “I will also try to work on the "Honey do" list my wife has started for me!” He said one of his favorite memories at All Saints is the groundbreaking for the high school expansion.
Groundskeeper Judy Briggs will begin a new business after she leaves All Saints, in which she will transition their homestead into an event and community center named Creative Acres. “I will be offering an entrepreneurial program that teaches out of the ordinary skills and allow students to be able to use this facility to test market their own ideas,” she said. Briggs began her relationship at All Saints in 2005 as a parent, volunteer, substitute teacher, and 13 years ago as the groundskeeper.
After completing his Masters Degree at Texas Tech, High School Debate Coach J.T. Seymore will leave All Saints after three years to pursue a full-time collegiate position. First grade teacher Grace Eslinger will leave the school she has loved for one year to pursue other interests. ... See MoreSee Less
