No Charges Filed Against OU Running Back and Katy Native, Rodney Anderson

The Katy high school graduate and OU running back will not be charged with sexual assault according to Cleveland County District Attorney, Greg Mashburn. 

 

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS – Katy, TX

December 14, 2017

Ashley Lancaster

Anderson, 21, who graduated from Katy High School in 2015, was accused of raping a woman in her apartment. She filed for a protective order after alleging the leading rusher forced her to have intercourse with him on November 16, and that she feared for her safety.

 

Mr. Anderson’s attorney has called the accusations, “patently false.” And today he was exonerated, after having cooperated with Cleveland County and the Norman Police Department. Late last week, Anderson submitted to and passed a three-hour lie-detector test, administered by former FBI polygraph examiner, Bill Brown.

“We want to make sure that sexual assault victims feel comfortable coming forward,” said Mashburn.

State Rep Mike Schofield Seeks Reelection, Endorsed by Governor Abbott

Republican Mike Schofield has served two terms at the Texas Capitol representing District 132 (Katy and Cy-Fair), and announced over the weekend that he has been endorsed by Governor Greg Abbott for reelection.
??SMLXL

 
KATY MAGAZINE NEWS
December 11, 2017
Ashley Lancaster
 
Below is an excerpt from his letter to Katy and Cypress residents:
 
?
“During my two terms in office, I have passed bills to mandate that lawsuits affecting the school finance system are heard by a three-judge panel rather that by one liberal judge in Austin (to ensure that views of the rest of Texas are heard), protect the integrity of our elections by allowing the attorney general to go after organizations that conspire to commit election fraud, increase funding for non-profit groups providing counseling for alternatives to abortion, and I successfully sponsored an amendment to the state constitution to ensure that your vote counts and that laws enacted by the representatives you elected are not thrown out in court without the attorney general having a chance to defend them.
Most recently, I have been instrumental in the drive to ensure that the Republican caucus nominates a candidate for speaker, to prevent the minority party from conspiring with a few breakaway Republicans to pick a speaker beholden to the party the voters did not choose to give control of the House.
??SMXLL

Recognizing the work that I have done to fight for conservative Texas values, Governor Greg Abbott announced yesterday that he is endorsing me for reelection so I can continue to work with him to enact a meaningful cap on state spending, reform the property tax system to provide relief to homeowners and business owners, protect property owners from wrongful annexation by cities they don’t want to live in, and continue to make Texas the best state in the nation in which to live and do business.
If you haven’t seen the video of Governor Abbott’s endorsement, you can find it here:
I intend to continue to keep you informed on what your legislature is working on so you can weigh in before the legislature takes action, when your views can affect how your government is run. And I intend to continue to work hard to ensure that your voice is heard in Austin.
I hope I can continue to earn your support.”

Quote from Texas Governor Greg Abbott:
“Mike Schofield is a conservative through and through, having demonstrated his commitment to education reform and lowering taxes as a member of the Texas House,” said Governor Abbott. “The constituents of House District 132 have been well represented by Mike over the last few years, and they can be assured that this trend will continue upon his re-election. That is why I am proud to endorse Mike for another term in the Texas House of Representatives.”

Cardiff Junior High Teacher Receives Special Honor for Her Contributions After Harvey

Lisa Forney, assistant principal for the Cardiff Colts, has received the title of “Life-Changer of the Year” ” for going above and beyond for her students and community.
Katy Independent School District is proud to announce that Cardiff Junior High (CJH) Assistant Principal Lisa Forney has been nominated by a local business partner as a “Life Changer of the Year” for going above and beyond for her students and community.
 

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS 
 
November 30, 2017
 
 
Meeting the needs of struggling faculty and staff
After Hurricane Harvey, Ms. Forney put pen to paper and outlined a comprehensive plan to meet the immediate needs of the Cardiff faculty and staff who were hardest hit by the storm.  Thus was born the “CJH Boots on the Ground Initiative” which consisted of a group of volunteers who cleaned out flooded homes, delivered food to work crews and collected donated items.  She went even further by reaching out to non-profit organizations to sponsor families and support them as they worked to get back on their feet. Because of Ms. Forney’s detailed planning, communication skills and her dedication to the community, many families received the help they needed after the storm.
?
 
Providing a stress-free Thanksgiving to Katy ISD families
However, her work didn’t end when the flood waters receded.  With the help of many staff members, she organized an essential needs pantry that efficiently served over 200 Cardiff families and community members.  Also, as the Thanksgiving season approached, Ms. Forney along with help from Tays Junior High volunteers, many local community partners and non-profit organizations led the coordination of the CJH Thanksgiving Pop-Up Market which provided turkeys and packaged food to over 100 families.  Her goal was to provide a stress-free Thanksgiving!
 
Ms. Forney’s desire to give without expectation has inspired and changed the lives of many.  Together as a school community, let’s help her win the National Grand Prize by visiting the Forney Life Changer of the Year profile and leaving a comment.
 
The Life Changer of the Year is a national program that recognizes K-12 educators and school employees for the positive difference they make in the lives of their students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.

Holy Covenant UMC Feeds Hungry Souls on Thanksgiving Day

Cheerful volunteers and community members at Holy Covenant UMC serves 1600 meals, provides clothing, books, and bibles to Katy families on Thanksgiving Day.

By Kathy Fraser

People who responded to the invitation for a free Thanksgiving meal, were greeted with hugs, offers of prayer, and music that warmed the heart, then their tummies were filled with traditional Thanksgiving favorite foods followed by a distribution of donated books, bibles, blankets, coats, clothing, diapers/wipes, and non-perishable food items, that helped to ease the struggle of tough times, even if it was only for a day.

A long-standing Thanksgiving tradition

This year’s community Thanksgiving celebration, hosted by Holy Covenant United Methodist Church, saw record numbers of guests come through its doors. The weather was deliciously cool and sunny, which set the scene for a beautiful outreach that was taking place both inside and outside the HCKaty campus. The tradition began in 2003 with Antioch Church and has been hosted by multiple church communities throughout the years.

Randalls provided the Katy Community Feast with all the necessary turkeys and Midway BBQ supplied all the ham. Good Ole boys cooked the turkeys at no charge with a nominal fee for slicing and packaging while Westside Chevrolet contributed financially. Other goods or services contributed by local Katy businesses are as follows: children’s books from Katy Budget Books, Spanish bibles from Lifeway Christian Store, racks and hangers from Brammers, multiple breads and bagels from Panera Bread, piano music by renowned musician, Steven Jones, and photography services from Photographyfray. Most of these Katy businesses have supplied services, goods, or funds every year since the start of this annual outreach for which the steering committee is so very grateful!

Bible donations, fun for kids, and meals delivered

In 2017, twelve Katy churches supplied the funds, side dishes, and volunteers in ministry needed to make the 2017 feast possible. Those churches include: Alief Baptist Church, Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, The Church at Cane Island, Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church, First Baptist Church of Katy, First United Methodist Church of Katy, Grace Fellowship United Methodist Church, Holy Covenant United Methodist Church, Kingsland Baptist Church, New Hope Presbyterian Church, St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, and Trinity Baptist Church. There are some individual and classes from within the churches that provide goods, such as the Rejoice Sunday School Class at FUMC. They used their funds to purchase 35 bilingual bibles for donation. The Katy Community Feast has always been blessed by the services of Boy Scout Troop 557. Since 2011, those boy scouts and their supervising adults have directed traffic, received side dish donations as they are dropped off at the church, and assisted guests with carrying of packages to their cars.

 A Kidz Corner was in full swing during the event. Acorn turkeys were crafted, pin the tail on the turkey games were played, and colorful drawings were made by many of the children who dined in or passed through. Two talented face-painters delighted the younger guests by creating their favorite design atop their smiling faces.

Most people in need of a Thanksgiving meal this year found out about The Katy Community Thanksgiving Feast during their visit to Katy Christian Ministries. Others may have learned of it through flyers distributed at the KCM Food Pantry, Christ Clinic, The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church, and Texas Children’s Pediatrics. Additional Feast invitations were posted in the local Katy newspaper and social media. People were asked to call in and pre-order their meals. Participants were invited to dine in, pick up meals to go, and if homebound, to sign up for meal delivery.

Help from nonprofit agencies for clothing donations and more

Five Katy non-profit agencies were on site this year to provide information about their services and answer any questions. They included: Christ Clinic (Lara Hamilton, Executive Director) Clothed by Faith (Abi Morton, Executive Director), Hope Impacts (Tina Hatcher Executive Director), Katy Christian Ministries (Deysi Crespo, Executive Director & Lily Rodgers, Social Services Director), and Pregnancy Help Center (Jeannie Z, Executive Director and Norma Zubiate, Volunteer Coordinator). Tina Hatcher has been bringing some of Katy’s homeless to the feast and distributing meals later in the day since 2013. Rona Lee, with Clothed by Faith, has been a part of the steering committee since 2015. Clothed by Faith sets up their large operation at the host church the day before and then on Thanksgiving Day is able to help address the clothing needs of those in attendance!

 This Feast Day saw a flurry of activity from start to finish. The first family arrived at 7:30am and the last ones to be served came late at 2:45pm! Meal orders exceeded 1600 this year and the clicker count indicated that there would not be enough food to feed everyone. However, just as with the story of the loaves and fishes, no one left unfed! Leftovers were shared with the Krause Center. God is good all the time!

 Katy, Texas is a special community. What makes it even more special is when businesses, churches, individuals, and organizations unite to serve a common good.  people who responded to the invitation for a free Thanksgiving meal, were greeted with hugs, offers of prayer, and music that warmed the heart, then their tummies were filled with traditional Thanksgiving favorite foods followed by a distribution of donated books, bibles, blankets, coats, clothing, diapers/wipes, and non-perishable food items, that helped to ease the struggle of tough times, even if it was only for a day. However, the reassurance that there are neighbors that love you, that reach out to care for your needs, and provide resources that can help you through the days ahead, gives hope, hope that feeds the soul.

Solis Mammography Launches Hurricane Harvey Relief Campaign

Solis Mammography’s ‘Help Us Help Houston’ campaign will benefit the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund through screenings and donations.

??SMLXL

 KATY MAGAZINE NEWS – Katy, TX 
November 21, 2017 
Giving the gift of restoration
Through the end of the year, Solis Mammography – the nation’s largest independent provider of breast screening services – presents its “Help Us Help Houston” campaign through its seven locations across the greater Houston region. From now through the end of the year, patients who schedule and complete their annual screening mammogram at Solis Mammography, will also give the gift of restoration and recovery.
Ten dollars for every mammogram
For every mammogram appointment scheduled and completed at any Solis Mammography center in the Houston area between Oct. 23 and Dec. 31, $10 will be donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund by Solis Mammography and its partners in the effort, HCA Healthcare Gulf Coast Division and Hologic. To signal their participation in the campaign, all patients need to do is use the code “Harvey” when they check-in for their appointment.
About the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund was established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Harris County Judge Ed Emmett. The fund is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation. Because of the immense need in and around Houston, this fund is dedicated to relieving gaps that are not met by other local and federal efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
“Many of our patients, team members and partners were deeply impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said DaWanda Nelson, vice president of operations for Solis Mammography in Houston. “We wanted to provide some form of substantial support, while also continuing our message of the importance of preventative screening to overall breast health. In this way, we’ll be contributing to both the health and well-being of Houston women – and the entire community. We’d also like to express our deep appreciation to our partners HCA Healthcare Gulf Coast Division and Hologic for joining us to support and fund this campaign.”
Solis Mammography’s growing presence in the Houston region includes its newly-dedicated breast health center at HCA-affiliated The Woman’s Hospital of Texas. Located in the newly refurbished One Fannin building next to the hospital, the center is uniquely designed to promote patient ease and peace of mind in an atmosphere devoted to both the patient experience and clinical accuracy.
To schedule an appointment at any of Solis Mammography’s seven Houston locations, go to https://www.solismammo.com/schedule-appointment/.

The Katy master-planned community of Cane Island now can boast of a location “from I-10 in a minute” with the opening of Cane Island Parkway at Highway 90, a major step for the community of new homes now in its second year. 

NOVEMBER 6, 2017

Motorists can now take the paved, four-lane north/south boulevard from Interstate 10 directly to and from Cane Island.

A major selling point for Cane Island

Fields of Faith: Over 150 Students Meet at Rhodes Stadium to Pray Openly for Community, Nation, Schools

Katy students hold fast to their faith, share testimonies, and pray over the district and their community at Rhodes Stadium on October 15. 

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS – Katy, Tx

October 16, 2017 

Ashley Lancaster 

On October 15, approximately 200 high school and junior high-aged Katy students participated in Fields of Faith, a youth-led event where students invite, pray for, share with, and challenge their peers to read the Bible and follow Jesus Christ. An athletic field provides a neutral rally point where a community can come together.

Fields of Faith 

In Katy, the familiar and historic Jack Rhodes Memorial Stadium served as the meeting place for what was to be a truly touching and inspiring night for young people and adults alike. 

 

Youth in prayer

The kids, who come from different schools and churches all over the city, prayed for our country, for our national, state and local leaders, for unity in the nation, for all of our schools, teachers and administrators. They also shared their personal testimonies and encouraged and shared their faith with each other. There was a live band to lead them in worship, and volunteers and pastors from Powerhouse, First Baptist Church of Katy, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes all came together to organize the event and make hot dogs for the kids to eat, provide an inspirational message, and close the evening in prayer. 

“It is so important for young people people to be encouraged to live their faith and share their faith with others,” says Pastor Robert Burdette.

Typhoon Texas WinterFest 2017 in Katy Cancelled Due to Hurricane Harvey Damage

The popular Christmas light wonderland display will not be open this year due to damage sustained to decorations and equipment during hurricane Harvey.

Looking forward to Winterfest 2018 

While Typhoon Texas managed to avoid damage from Harvey’s flood waters, the same can’t be said for the decorations and lights used for the park’s holiday celebration, WinterFest. Stored offsite in a nearby facility, decorations and lights for WinterFest were damaged due to flooding, leaving the waterpark with no choice but to cancel this year’s event. “We tried to save as much as we could, but the damage was just too much,” said Typhoon Texas General Manager Evan Barnett.  “We’ll certainly look at all options for 2018.”

The good news

As for the waterpark, it re-opened to big crowds about a week after Harvey’s landfall with no reported damage from the storm. Typhoon Texas completed its second season weeks later in September. “It was another terrific summer season for the waterpark,” Barnett added. “As always, we’ll use the off season to look at ways to enhance every aspect of the Typhoon Texas experience.”Season passes for Typhoon Texas’ 2018 season are now on sale TyphoonTexas.com.

Update on Taylor HS Defensive End and TAMU Commit Max Wright

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS – Katy, TX 

September 26, 2017 

Ashley Lancaster 

The family of Taylor High School’s injured star defensive end and Texas A&M commit, Max Wright, opens up about surgery, recovery, and plans for college.

An injury late in the third

During last week’s match up against Fort Bend Austin, Mustang defensive end and A&M commit Max Wright left the game late in the third quarter complaining of a “muscle cramp” and did not make a reappearance. 

Late Saturday, an MRI confirmed that Wright had suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, an injury that will keep him on the sidelines for the remainder of the season. 

True to form, the faithful football player encouraged his friends, teammates, and followers on Twitter with inspirational bible verses. And faith will play a huge role in the months to come while Max prepares for his big comeback with the Texas A&M Aggies. 

Surgery on the books

“Honestly, we are heartbroken that he will miss his senior year but are seeking to believe and trust that God has bigger and better things in store for Max down the road,” says his mother, Cydney Wright. 

According to Cydney, Max’s surgery is scheduled for October 5 by Dr. Walter Lowe, and he is already working out and attending physical therapy at Memorial Hermann Ironman. “He is ready to tackle this head on and feels incredibly strong!” says Wright.

Continuing to lead 

As a team captain, the 6’4″, 270 lb. athlete will continue to lead his team from the sidelines while continuing to focus on rehab and recovery and preparing to play college football for the Aggies. 

The Wright family would like to thank the Katy ISD community for their outpouring of love, support, and prayers.

We are truly grateful for all the love , prayers and support from the Texas A&M coaches and families as well as all our family and friends! Max is amazingly strong and his determination has proven that he can handle adversity and with God’s help he will be back stronger than ever and ready to hit Kyle Field when he reports to College Station after graduation. Setbacks bring amazing comebacks! Thank you for your continued prayers! Gig’em and Go Mustangs!”

No Make Up Days to Be Added to Katy ISD School Breaks Due to Harvey

September 22, 2017

Katy ISD says no make up days will be added over Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Breaks, but there will be four extended early release days

A Message to Parents from Katy ISD

 

As many families and staff continue recovery efforts in our neighborhoods, homes and community, we are also slowly but surely getting back on track with the business of teaching and learning across Katy ISD campuses.  As you know, our students lost two weeks of instructional time as a result of Tropical Storm Harvey.  However, because the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will be waiving up to 10 instructional days, there will be no need to extend the 2017-18 instructional calendar, or to modify the Thanksgiving, Christmas/winter, and spring breaks.

Our Curriculum Department has worked diligently over the past few weeks to realign and restructure the curriculum unit plans to ensure that all state standards will be taught this school year.  As such, there will be no gaps in the taught and tested curriculum. 

Also, to ensure that our students receive the full benefits of the Katy ISD learning experience, we have identified means to regain lost instructional time to deliver additional support to students.This includes providing enrichment resources for our families, supplementary study opportunities for Advanced Placement (AP) students, and extending four early release days to full days of instruction.

 Enrichment Resources for Families: Online instructional enrichment activities developed by our Curriculum Department are available for parents or guardians to work with their child(ren) at home.  These enhanced learning activities are ungraded and optional, and are available on the Katy ISD Curriculum & Instruction web page. Each core subject area will be covered for the remainder of the school year.  These subjects include language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. 

Support for Advanced Placement (AP) Students: Additional study opportunities will also be offered to students preparing for the May 2018 AP exams. Review sessions and resources are currently being developed and will be shared with students, and published on the website later this Fall.

Extending Four Early Release Days: The 2017-2018 instructional calendar included six “early release” days that are typically designated for professional development, teacher preparation, and parent conferences. Four of the previously designated early release days (Oct. 9, 20, Feb 16, April 13) will be extended to full instructional days.  This is designed to allow students more time in the classroom, as well as to serve the needs of so many of our families who are displaced by Harvey and depending, now more than ever, on the daily routine of school to bring a sense of normalcy to their child(ren)’s lives.  We understand that October 9 and 20 had been set aside for parent/teacher conferences at many campuses.  However, in lieu of the in-person conferences, parents are encouraged to communicate with teachers by email and/or phone.  Parents should also continue to monitor their student’s progress on theHome Access Center.  Friday, December 15 and Thursday, May 24 will remain “early release” days since final exams are given on those dates.

Thank you for your understanding as we move forward with these post-Harvey initiatives to recapture lost instructional time and to provide additional support to our students and families. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your school.

Katy ISD Education Founation Reaches Harvey Relief Goal, Still Going

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS – Katy, TX 

September 22, 2017 

Ashley Lancaster

On September 11, 2017, the Katy ISD Education Foundation launched an initiative to provide support for Katy ISD families and staff that were impacted by the flooding from Hurricane Harvey by collecting donations from the community. 

The response was overwhelming. In just four days, the foundation had raised approximately 50 percent of their original goal. As of this morning, the total funds raised was $56,249. The new goal – $75,000 to be given directly back to men, women, and children right here in Katy ISD who lost homes, personal possessions, and who need it most. 

Individual donations can be made in any amount, no matter how big or small, or the foundation provides options to donate up to $2500 at a time for those who are willing and able. 

The fundraiser will close on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Click here to contribute. 

“While the district is in a strong position to support facility recovery, the real need we see lies with the families in our community,” says Superintendent Lance Hindt.

Harris County Fire Chief Thanks Katy ISD for Relief and Rescue Efforts

KATY MAGAZINE NEWS – Katy, Texas

September 11, 2017

Harris County Fire Chief says, “Thank You” to Katy ISD for their relief and rescue contributions. 
 

All of Katy Stepped Up 

In a recent press release expressing his sympathies and to all families and residents who suffered water and wind damage from Hurricane Harvey, Harris County Emergency Services Fire Chief (Dist. 48) Jeffrey S. Hevey gave his sincerest thanks to several local organizations who stepped up to help rescue people from flooded areas in both HCESD No. 48 and FBESD No. 1. 

Among those listed were the Katy ISD Police Department, Katy ISD campuses, and Katy ISD Department of Transportation (school buses). 

Katy ISD Stands Out 

During the six days of the storm and continued flooding, the district opened it’s doors at Cinco Ranch High School and Morton Ranch High School to accept 4,000 displaced residents and donations for families in need. Katy High School served as the main operating headquarters for U.S. National Guard and other military while they carried out rescue and relief missions all over south Texas. Katy ISD bus drivers bravely volunteered to drive district vehicles into high water to rescue 450 people trapped by flood waters. Katy ISD police officers faithfully, dutifully served their community in every necessary capacity during the storm.  During a time when roughly 15,000 students and 2,600 Katy ISD employees were directly impacted by the storm and subsequent flooding, the impact that the district had on relief and rescue efforts is truly inspiring. 

Below is the full list of the partners and agencies named by Chief Hevey: 

– Powerhouse Church (Shelter)

– Katy ISD Police Department

– CrossPoint Church (Shelter) 

– Westlake Fire Department

– Harris County Sheriff

– Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office

– Harris County Office of Emergency Management

– Fort Bend County Sheriff

– Precinct 5 Constables (Harris County)

– Precint 3 Constables (Fort Bend County) 

– Texas Department of Public Service (State Troopers)

– MIdland, Texas Police

Bear Creek Elementary Sewage Impacted by Hurricane Harvey

Katy, TX News (September 8, 2017) – Neighborhoods surrounding Bear Creek Elementary suffered severe flooding last week.  While the school was left intact, the local service provider has placed restrictions on water usage, as nearby lift pumps, along with the waste water treatment plant were compromised by the storm.

These restrictions will limit the school’s access to water and waste treatment.  As such, Bear Creek Elementary students and staff will be transferred to Paetow High School, located at 23111 Stockdick School Rd., Katy, TX, for the reopening of schools on September 11.  Paetow is Katy ISD’s newest high school which opened its doors this fall to two grade levels – freshman and sophomore classes.  The elementary students will be housed in the east tower of the campus, currently unoccupied by secondary students.

Transportation for all Bear Creek Elementary zoned students will be provided, should they need it. Information regarding routes, pick up and drop off times/locations will be emailed to parents before Monday.

In the meantime, operations crews have completed their mechanical and electrical assessments, which met all standards.  Since there was no flood water intrusion within the building, Bear Creek students and staff will be returning to a safe and secure learning environment once restrictions are removed by the local service provider.

“Students and staff are our highest priority during this recovery process,” said Superintendent Lance Hindt.  “Though the relocation for Bear Creek students is temporary, multiple Katy ISD departments are working vigorously to make this a smooth transition for everyone, both now and when students and staff are able to return to their school.”

Katy ISD closed the district on August 25 in anticipation of Hurricane Harvey.  Following the storm, the District announced that 16 campuses had been impacted by flooding in surrounding neighborhoods. One campus, Creech Elementary took on several feet of water and arrangements have since been made for students and staff to be relocated to the University of Houston Cinco Ranch campus while repairs are being made at the school.  Bear Creek Elementary will be the second school to relocate as a result of Tropical Storm Harvey.  The remaining 14 schools have cleared building assessments and will reopen in their home locations this Monday.

Schools reopen across Katy ISD on September 11.

Katy ISD to Re-Open Schools on Monday, September 11

Katy, TX News (August 31, 2017) – Due to limited personnel as a result of the aftermath of Tropical Storm Harvey, it is projected that Katy ISD schools will reopen on Monday, September 11.  Staff who can safely commute to work are asked to return to their campuses or office on Wednesday, September 6.

Only two Katy ISD campuses, Creech Elementary and Beck Junior High, sustained severe water damage which will require a significant amount of time to repair and restore.  Fourteen Katy ISD campuses are located within neighborhoods directly impacted by flooding, though the school buildings remain intact.  Nevertheless, there is a tremendous amount of work ahead for Katy ISD over the coming days, weeks and months as the District prepares to welcome back students and restore facilities and structures impacted by the storm.

Katy Woman Thanks Memorial Hermann Doctor Who Helped Save Her Life

Katy, TX News (June 29, 2017) – A Katy woman recently returned to thank the physician who she says helped saved her life. Back in March, Danisha Henry was home alone when she collapsed. After reviving enough to call 911, she was taken to the Emergency Center at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. That’s when Dr. Mikael Lucas, an emergency medicine physician affiliated with Memorial Hermann Katy, discovered a ruptured brain aneurysm and sent her to Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Institute at the Texas Medical Center. There, neurosurgeons fixed her aneurysm and Henry has since made a full recovery.
 
“If you met me today, you wouldn’t know that I had a life-threatening aneurysm. I don’t think it was until after I recovered that I realized how rare it is for people who experienced a brain aneurysm to recover without any lasting neurological damage. I believe Dr. Lucas’ care and quick action made a big difference in my recovery. I had to come back and say thank you,” says Henry.
“As an emergency medicine physician, you don’t always get to see how a patient recovers after they leave the emergency center. I can remember what she looked like when she came in, and it was like seeing two different people. It was such a nice surprise to see Danisha again and learn how well she’s doing,” says Dr. Lucas.
Memorial Hermann Katy has a level IV trauma center staffed with specially-trained nurses and physicians prepared to provide critical care services. The neuroscience program at Memorial Hermann Katy brings together a collaborative group of fellowship-trained, board-certified neurologists and neurosurgeons who are prepared to treat some of the most acute brain, spinal cord and neural conditions, so patients can receive advanced treatment close to home.  In cases where additional treatment is critical, Memorial Hermann Life Flight® can transport patients to Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and the highly-acclaimed Mischer Neuroscience Institute.
