Alice Lobell, better known as Ms. Alice to many Helena residents, is a life long educator and artist.  She is proud and honored to serve in Place 3 on the Helena City Council.


Alice has a B.A. In Art Education from Harding University;  graduated Magna Cum Laude from George Washington University in Washington, DC, with a master’s degree in Higher Education and Human Development; and has a master’s degree in Art Education from the University of Montevallo, where she received the Outstanding Graduate  Award. 


As the first art teacher at Helena Elementary School, Alice developed the art program into a creative and educational environment that impacted the lives of Helena students for 2 generations.  The annual HES art show and sale, created by Alice, boasts as being the town’s largest art show where all her students were  contributing artists.


Alice’s community involvement includes working with various Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups in the area, conducting classes and workshops, and helping them complete requirements for any and all art related badges.  Alice has been a member of the Helena Christmas parade committee for more than 25 years.  An avid supporter of Helena athletics, Alice attends as many sporting events as possible,  cheering for all the young athletes that she considers to be “her kids”.


“My deep love for this community is why I decided to get into city  government.  It is a privilege and honor to be a member of Helena City Council”.


Alice’s immediate family also call  Helena home.  Her son, Jonathan Hollabaugh, his wife, Brook, their two children, Riley and Madison, and her mother, Catherine Arrington, all live in Helena.


Alice is the liaison for the Helena Teen Council, liaison for the Helena Arts Council, and will continue to work with the Christmas parade committee.
