Council recognizes teacher for donating kidney to studentís father
From staff reports
At the June 12 Highland Village City Council meeting, the council recognized Marie Bell, a kindergarten teacher at Highland Village Elementary School.
Bell learned the father of one of her students was in dire need of a kidney transplant. Bell volunteered to participate in the donor screening process, was found as a match and underwent surgery to donate one of her kidneys to her studentís father, Marshall Smith.
ďItís hard for me to imagine the sacrifice Ms. Bell has made; she is truly a role model for all,Ē stated Mayor Pat Davis.
Also at this meeting, the council approved resolutions appointing members to fill unexpired terms on the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Highland Village Community Development Corporation.

Council members Bill Meek and Michelle Schwolert were appointed to the Highland Village Community Development Corporation to fill terms expiring in September 2013.
