We are so very sorry to report that Donna Edler lost her battle with breast cancer and has passed.  Donna was a diligent worker and cared deeply about children and her community. She served well on the school board – from her heart, and in our opinion, did nothing to deserve removal by the Governor. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Donna’s family.

  1. Sadly, we have also lost a student.

    Girl, 5, struck and killed while trick-or-treating identified

    A 5-year-old girl hit and killed while trick-or-treating in DeKalb County on Thursday night was a student at Chapel Hill Elementary.

    Autumn Mack was with a group of people, including parents, when she stepped in front of a moving minivan. The accident happened around 7 p.m. on Pepperdine Drive, according to police.

    The five-year-old had been standing behind her mother’s parked SUV before darting into the road, a DeKalb County police report stated.

    She was transported to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, where she died, police said.

  2. More sadly, we have lost another student: a basketball player from Miller Grove

    Miller Grove High mourns fallen basketball star

    Miller Grove High School is grieving the loss of freshman Terrell Coleman. He died doing what he loved: playing basketball. On Oct. 29, students at Miller Grove High School in Lithonia honored the life of the highly-ranked freshman by wearing all black.

    “Terrell was important to us. That was our teammate and our friend. We had to do something for him,” said 17-year-old James Walker, who joined fellow teammates and classmates in honoring Coleman, who died Oct. 27 after passing out while playing at the Action Sports Academy in Stone Mountain.

    I find it extremely sad and it distressed me to know that Donna fought for an injustice while she battled for life. To know that her cancer had resurfaced, yet the Will and determination to clear her good name maintained first and foremost with her to the end. Donna was a courageous outgoing go getter whose main concern was always about the kids. To know that she could have selfishly given her all to her husband. Two sons, and baby daughter..yet focused on ALL the children of DeKalb County shows the type of woman she was.

    Donna you were truly a sheep..a one of a kind and you will be missed…God Bless your family and God Bless you!
