Incarnate Word Academy is blessed to have Mr. Ronney Heslip as our Middle and High School Level art teacher and sponsor for both Art and Photography Club. Mr. Heslip uses his 40 years of experience in education to bring out the creativity and imagination in all of our students.
A graduate of both Texas A&I University and Corpus Christi State University, Mr. Heslip encourages his students to ALWAYS set goals, no matter their age. He strives to live by, and teaches his students to live by, Psalm 123: "I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven."
Mr. Heslip has stories for days - and not just about his 40 years in education! He coached former NFL long snapper Clint Gresham and has been commissioned by both the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys for his artwork. His work with celebrities doesn't end there; he has also worked as a body guard for Reba McEntire, Clint Black, and George Straight!
Thank you Mr. Heslip for being such a great role model and leader to our students.
