FHHS Trainer Cody Elmendorf Donates Kidney to Aunt
Posted on 08/22/2018
FHHS athletic trainer Cody Elmendorf is more than just a hero to student-athletes on the field, he’s also a hero to his family, as well. He recently performed a great act of selflessness when he donated one of his kidneys to an aunt in need. In 2009, Cody lost one of his aunts to a hereditary condition called polycystic renal disease, in which cysts grow on the kidneys and lead to the deterioration of the organ. This tragic experience led his other aunt, Mary Beth Stegall, to go in for her own examination, where she discovered that she also had the disease. As a result, Stegall had to have both of her kidneys removed, and was required to undergo dialysis three times a week for four hours each day.   Read more about FHHS Trainer Cody Elmendorf Donates Kidney to Aunt

To celebrate the anniversary, the school displayed a “throwback” sign to welcome students on the first day of school, the same banner that was used in 1998 as the first class of Patriots took their initial steps into middle school. The banner has special significance because it has the signatures of all of the staff and students from that first year.  Read more about Bryan Middle School Celebrates 20 Years
