In an essay in the January issue of American Organist, Simmons continues, "My first elected position came when I became dean of the DePauw chapter. Following graduation in 1951, I entered Union Theological Seminary's School of Sacred Music."

Simmons has been involved at the AGO's national level for a number of years, he points out, "serving as director of the denominational relations committee and as director of the development committee... Never in all my professional career have I had the opportunity of working with such dedicated, knowledgeable and empathetic men and women."
