City Council honors detention officer who will donate her kidney

I've already told you about Detention Officer Tricia Wadell, who is scheduled to donate her kidney to Police Chief Greg Dagnan of Carthage, Mo. Today, the City Council recognized her with a special resolution, and I really want to thank them and Mayor Mark Funkhouser for doing so. Tricia was very honored, and her family came up from southern Missouri to see it. Also in attendance were Chief Dagnan and his wife, who made the trek from Carthage. Chief Dagnan will receive Tricia's kidney in a tandem operation in St. Louis on July 29. Both will take 6-8 weeks away from police work to recover. I wish them the very best.
