Ropes Independent School District, Alumni Spotlight – Steven Sims

Steven Sims caught the flying bug early in life watching James Means stop truckers on US 62-82 with his low flying crop dusting skills and watching the USAF Thunderbirds out at Reese Air Force base. After graduating from Ropes High School in 1978, Steven started training for his licenses and ratings in Levelland and then in Lubbock. While finishing his BBA at Texas Tech, he became a certified flight instructor and flew with many students in various Cessna and Piper aircraft.

After obtaining his Airline Transport Rating, Steven moved to Ft.Worth with his new wife, Laura, and began his airline career with Ft Worth Airlines and Rio Airways. Both were short-lived, but provided valuable experience. The next two and a half years, Steven flew a MU-3 business jet out of Love Field.

Officer Ron and Tina would like to share this with our Ropes Eagle Family.

Each day of most of the month of May, Ron has come home with an armful of notes, cards or food. This week was something of a cherry on top; with an overflow of blessings from students and teachers and parents.

On Monday the 21st I said “how can we ever thank them.”

There are not thank you card sufficient, there are not words adequate to communicate the blessing of all of you.

Every crayon stroke, each signature on a thoughtful card, every dash of salt or dash to the store – each time you spoke our name in love, in prayer or in Christian concern has been appreciated more than you know.

We are not accustomed to receiving such kindness; we are more comfortable giving than receiving – but to each there is a Season. God has chosen us to receive from each of you and we are forever grateful.

We think of each of you as special and precious.

Thank you, may your hearts and homes be blessed for all of your kindness.

Every day is a great day to be a Ropes Eagle.
Tina.
