Simons and Jones Named New Athletic Directors

The Simons Family

After teaching and coaching at All Saints since 2010, Kyle Simons will assume the role of the High School Athletic Director.  He will continue to teach High School AP United States Government / Politics and Comparative Government / Politics as well as serve as the Girls Basketball Head Coach and Assistant Football Coach.

He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sports Science and a Masters in Education Leadership from Texas Tech University.

“In the 11 years I’ve been at All Saints, I have chosen to teach here because the sense of community at All Saints is amazing. All of our kids do their best and support each other. ” His goals for the year are “for each of our teams and athletes to be the best that they can be. If you can maximize your capabilities, you will have success.  Our athletes are expecting to have a successful year and it’s fun seeing them work towards their goals,” Coach Simons said.

“The strength for this year’s seasons are our clear goals and objectives,” Coach Simons said. “Our obstacles will be finding our footing after a very strange year.”

He has been married to Candice for 16 years.  Their children Breanna (13) and Charlie (10) attend All Saints.

Dino with his wife, Diana

Cross Country and Track Coach Dino Jones will continue in his role as the track and cross country coach for middle and high school, but in addition he will assume the newly created position of Middle School Athletic Director. In this new role he will oversee all middle school athletics at All Saints.

“I would like to see every middle school student in Competitive Athletics, so they can understand the value of athletics,” Coach Jones said.  “This position will give me an opportunity to impact the kids’ lives.”

He hopes to help the students develop athletically and teach them how to use their athletic abilities.

Coach Jones has been in education for 39 years.  He joined the All Saints team in the fall of 2016. Prior to All Saints he taught in Midland ISD and Lubbock ISD with several years of coaching experience that included football, track, and cross country.

He has a BA degree in Education from New Mexico Highlands University where he also played college football.  He was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2015.

He is married to Diana and they have 10 beautiful grandchildren!  They are both avid sports fans and love OU Football, the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys!

New School Counselor for PLC, LS and MS

The Holligan Family

Alicia Holligan will be serving as our new School Counselor and will be working with the preschool – eighth grade students.

Alicia is a life-long educator who began her career as a first-grade teacher at Bayless Elementary in Lubbock.  Over the course of 31 years, she spent the majority of her career developing and overseeing behavior programs for a Special Education Cooperative and for the Lubbock Independent School District. She worked at Region 17 Education Service Center as an Education Specialist in Behavior with a focus on Trauma Informed Care and Positive Behavior Intervention Systems. 

Alicia has been married to her high school sweetheart, Dale Holligan, for 31 years.  They have two boys, Taylor and Tanner, one AMAZING grandson, Aden, and a very sassy GoldenDoodle, Sophie. Her hobbies include listening to music, exercising, and most of all, baking.  In fact, she has a small baking business that serves as her therapy!  You will never find her sitting down because she is looking for fun everywhere she goes.  

Through many life experiences both personally and professionally, Alicia believes in the power of a teacher… they DO leave footprints on every child they encounter.  One footprint is that of a positive influence and encouragement.  Her goal is to work collaboratively with students, teachers, and parents to ensure that the only footprint left is positive and promotes lifelong growth.

THEATRE NEWS

While many students, teachers, and parents spend their days relaxing by the pool, going on trips, and sleeping the day away, a handful of All Saints theatre students have spent their summer performing. Shane Strawbridge, All Saints’ theatre director, pushed for his students to participate in these events.

“I know there is a tendency from some people in theatre education to be very protective and guard their students from work outside of campus, but I don’t see the benefit in that,” says Strawbridge. “It is really beneficial for students to be exposed to theatre styles and methods beyond what we have time to do during the school year. Since I had relationships with these companies, it made it an easy choice to share those opportunities with the students of All Saints.”

Ian Jeffreys, a seventh grade student at All Saints, was cast as the lead role of the Ugly Duckling in Moonlight Musicals production of Honk, Jr.

“I love doing theatre,” says Ian. “Generally I’m a pretty laid back and chill person, but when I do theatre, I can become a different sort of person and still have fun. Theatre helps me to learn how to manage my time and how to have fun with things instead of being stressed all the time. The people around me helped a lot. And it was really cool that I got to work with my sister on this project.”

Ian’s younger sister, Lexi, a fifth grade student at All Saints, was cast as the Ugly Duckling’s little sister in the show. She also liked the camaraderie and building relationships through theatre.

“I liked that Mr. Strawbridge was the director, which made it easier to be comfortable at first,” says Lexi. “If you have a mean director that yells at you all the time, it makes it hard to get excited, but Mr. Strawbridge is fun to work with. Doing theatre has given me skills that I use in other areas of school, and it helps me relax and calm my mind from all the other parts of my life. Theatre helped me learn to focus, learn memorization skills, and work together as a member of the team.”

Two fourth grade students, Abigail Coon and Addison Abbe, were also featured in the show.

“Moonlight felt like an extension of what we already learn at All Saints with Mr. Strawbridge,” says Abigail. “Theatre is a big confidence booster for me, and that’s why I do it. I got to meet a lot of new people and have a lot of fun.”

Abigail was also a big help to Addison Abbe in preparing for the show.

“Abby helped me a lot by talking to me and making jokes, and that made me more comfortable in a room with people I didn’t already know,” says Addison. “Knowing that I have been on stage before at All Saints helped me get ready to face the bigger audiences at the amphitheater. Working at All Saints and with this show helped me learn that theatre is something that I want to do.  It is my passion and I love theatre.”

Almost 1,500 miles away in Roanoke, VA, two other theatre students are preparing to appear in the Hollins University Festival of New Works. This year, due to COVID concerns, the festival is online, which opened participation up to actors across the country. ASES fifth grade student Ellie Beth Moss is appearing in two shows in the festival, The Dragon Butcher by Richie Cannaday and The Star of the County Down by Kristen Lundberg.

“This festival is a different way of doing theatre than what I have done in the past,” says Ellie Beth. “It’s fun, but it can be challenging using zoom for theatre. We’re mostly used to using props and sets in person, but it’s different when it’s a reading online.”

Eighth grade student Reya Felton is also appearing in two shows, In Bloom by Gwyneth Strope and The Detention Lottery by Margaret O’Donnell.

“I have really enjoyed working with older and more experienced actors,” says Reya. “This festival allows me to use a more mature style of acting, which is what I like to do.”

Although all six of these students had unique experiences over the summer, they all gave credit to their education at All Saints for helping to prepare them for the opportunity.

“I learned a lot of the terminology, techniques, and methods from Mr. Strawbridge, and I was able to use those in rehearsals for Hollins,” says Felton. “All Saints really prepared me for this moment.”

Coaches Corner

NEW HEAD FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL COACHES

David Chapman, Head Varsity Basketball Coach

David Chapman will take over as Varsity Boys Head Basketball Coach after serving as the Assistant Coach since 2015.   He will continue to teach Middle School Math (Math 7 and Pre Algebra) as well as serve as the Middle School and High School Head Golf Coach.

This is Coach Chapman’s 39th year of Education. He spent 32 years in Lubbock ISD, with stints at Hutchinson MS, Dunbar MS, Estacado HS and Monterey HS. He was the Monterey HS  Head Basketball Coach his last seven years with LISD before coming to All Saints.

“All Saints is a special place because the students give everything they have to be their best,” Coach Chapman said. “The faculty and staff are great people and fun to work with. Everyone who works here wants the best for these students and challenge them every day.”

Coach Chapman said he made the decision to come to All Saints because, “I’ve known Coach Brashear for 30 years and the opportunity to work with he and Dr. Bennett was an opportunity of a lifetime. I am blessed to be an All Saints Patriot.”

“I am looking forward to working with this group of young men because they are hard workers, fun to be around and very coachable,” Coach Chapman said. “Our goal this year is to get better each and every day. If we can do this, we’ll have the potential to go deep in the playoffs.”

He says the team’s biggest obstacle this year will be experience. “This [experience] will come together as we get games under our belts. As we work as a team the experience will come,”
Coach Chapman said. “It’s a great group of young men that love the game and strive each day to get better. It will take time but the opportunity is there.”

He received his Bachelor of Science in Education (Math and Physical Education) from New Mexico State University with Texas Educator Certifications in Elementary Mathematics (Grades 1-8), Elementary Self-Contained (Grades 1-8), and Secondary Physical Education (Grades 6-12).

He and his wife, Karen, have two sons: Ryan, an architect in Akron, Ohio; and Austin, a pilot in the United States Air Force.

Jeremy Binion, Fourth Grade Teacher and Head Football Coach

Jeremy Binion is the new Varsity Head Football Coach after serving All Saints for two years as the team’s defensive coordinator and one year as the offensive coordinator.  He will continue to teach Fourth Grade Math also.

He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Management from Grand Canyon University and is married to Shelby Binion.  Shelby is joining All Saints this year as a high school math teacher.

“I choose to coach at All Saints because of the kids. I believe as a coach it is my duty to prepare our high school athletes to be successful members of society that are noble young men and women,” Binion said. “The kids here at All Saints understand that and are eager to make a change in their lives now and then carry that throughout their lives after high school.“

“We have a very strong senior class this year that is very excited and eager to get going,” he said. “I think their motivation will carry us pretty far this year.“

What must the football team overcome to be successful?

“Numbers. This is always a struggle for football at All Saints,” Coach Binion said.  “We will need to stay healthy and strong throughout the season to be able to compete well.”
