Right Worshipful Reid James Simmons
The Reid James Simmons Academy of Masonic Ritual was named after Right Worshipful Reid James Simmons, Past Grand Lecturer for the Grand Lodge of Virginia. Right Worshipful Brother Simmons exemplified the core values of Freemasonry through Masonic ritual for many years to a great number of Entered Apprentices, Fellowcrafts, and Master Masons throughout Virginia. He held countless Schools of Instruction across the face of our Commonwealth, and, as the custodian of our ritual, he insured its purity, the accuracy of our knowledge of it, and dedicated himself to improving the ritualistic ability of every Master Mason and officer in our Grand Lodge.
