Holy Innocents' 'Lent Madness' raises thousands for Horizons

Holy Innocents' 'Lent Madness' raises thousands for Horizons

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- The Episcopal Church has a tradition of donating money saved during Lent (the 40 days before Easter) to a special cause. Timothy Seamans, Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School (HIES) Lower School Chaplain, added a twist to that tradition by having first through fifth-grade homerooms compete to see who could raise the most money in a new annual event called Lent Madness.

This year, the students raised a whopping $6,800! The recipient will be the Horizons Program for economically disadvantaged children, a community-centered, education program that operates outside the traditional school year. Horizons’ long-term program offers students deep engagement and opportunities to help put them on a path to success, both in school and in life.

“Lent Madness certainly sparked a spirit of generosity with the students,” said Lower School Principal Terri Potter. “They were thrilled to help the Horizons students have books and other resources they may need.”

Holy Innocents' volleyball coach receives national recogntion

By Dunn Neugebauer

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Volleyball coach Taylor Noland at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School is no stranger to local and state recognition as both a player and a coach. Now she has earned national recognition, as well.

The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) has named Noland one of their Top 30 Under 30, an award created to honor 30 of the up-and-coming volleyball coaches 30 years old or younger, at all levels of the game. Noland is the only female high school coach in the country to receive the honor.

“It’s humbling to be named by an organization like the AVCA,” Noland said. “I just want to add, however, that this wouldn’t be possible without all the hard work from my players over the years, not to mention the support from the athletic staff and parents at Holy Innocents’.”
