in honor of Ron Allie, Julie bramble, and rod warner
Please join us in honoring the retirements of Ron Allie, Julie Bramble, and Rod Warner on Thursday, May 13, 2021, in the McClendon Athletic Center (MAC) from 5:30-7:30 pm. Be sure to wear your Charger gear!
It’s almost impossible to imagine Heritage Hall Middle School without its iconic leader, Ron Allie, at the helm. Mr. Allie began his 42-year tenure in 1978 as the fifth Middle School Head. As both an administrator and coach, Mr. Allie has devoted his career to the growth and success of thousands of Middle School students, many of whom still treasure him as “the nicest guy ever.” Many of the School’s longest-tenured employees are Middle School teachers and staff who credit Mr. Allie for his fair and steady leadership, his commitment to faculty development, and, above all, his ability to see the humor in nearly any situation.
Julie Bramble began her career at Heritage Hall in the fall of 1991 as a kindergarten teacher then moved to the Early Childhood Center (ECC). In 2007, Julie began a 13-year tenure in the Upper School, teaching English and serving as the associate director of College Counseling, a role that she describes as “the most rewarding job at Heritage Hall: helping students to reach a highly anticipated milestone on their academic journey – choosing a college.”
Rod Warner came to Heritage Hall in August, 1983. He was named Athletic Director in 1986. Under Coach Warner’s leadership, Charger athletic programs evolved significantly, both in terms of championships and in successfully fulfilling Warner’s philosophy of “Building Champions for Life,” which Warner describes as the foundation of Heritage Hall's interscholastic athletic program. President Guy Bramble has credits Warner as being the “architect of Heritage Hall’s athletic success,” noting that the Chargers have won 81 of the School’s 91 state championships during his 38 years at Heritage Hall.
It has been a wonderful 6 years working for your in the middle school. You have always so supportive of me, whether it be conducting research in my classroom for my graduate thesis, buying materials for my classroom, and always suppling the best cakes each month! You have given me the freedom to bloom into the teacher that I am today. We are so grateful for you steady leadership in the MS for all these years, and next year won't be the same without you! Enjoy your retirement and thank you for everything!
