On Thursday, March 24th, Robert Rubi took the stage during Immanuel Christian School’s annual Spiritual Renewal Week called “E.A.T Week”, to announce that after 21 years at ICS he will be resigning as the Athletic Director at ICS. In a letter sent to Immanuel families, Rubi wrote, “In 2008 I accepted the position as Athletic Director and have been serving in this capacity ever since. A very special thanks to the late Coach Dave Frazier as he mentored me through the transition. I am a sports fanatic! This position was a perfect fit for me. Being part of a program that sets such a great Godly example on the field, track, and court has been a complete and true blessing!” In Robert Rubi’s 21 years at ICS he served in the daycare, cafeteria, classroom, as principal, and finally as Athletic Director since 2008. Referring to his vision for the athletic program while at the helm, Rubi said, “As a program we strive to be the best example for Him wherever we are and whatever sport we are playing. Our desire in the program has always been to help mold the young student athlete into young men and woman that truly love our Lord and Savior.” The Rubi family will be moving to Edinburg, TX, in the Summer to begin the next chapter of their lives, while Robert’s oldest son Landon plans on attending Texas Tech University in the Fall. “After twenty-one years of serving the Warrior Family I will be stepping down as the Immanuel Christian School Athletic Director. God has opened yet another door for me and my family in the Edinburg/McAllen, TX area…You all are my forever family and I appreciate each and every one of you. Your love has been so special. From the bottom of our (Rubi Family) hearts we say...Thank you! Your love, support, kindness, and goodness to the Rubi Family will be forever appreciated and missed. We love you, Warrior Family! Once a Warrior...Always a Warrior!” Thank you Robert Rubi for your 21 years of service and sacrifice to Immanuel, you will be missed and in our prayers as you and your family move into this next chapter of your lives. “Once a Warrior, Always a Warrior!”
