DONNA TERRELL
Donna Terrell would be active in her community even if she wasn't a local celebrity. Her status as a news anchor at Fox 16 in Little Rock makes it even easier to do what she loves - helping people.
...
Terrell is a member of the Little Rock Chapter of the Links Inc. She is required to do 45 hours of community service per year but has "done way more than that. She co-chaired the organization's major fundraiser this year. Terrell is also an ambassador for the American Cancer Society and also works closely with the Muscular Dystrophy Association - emceeing charitable events and hosting the Labor Day Telethon on Fox 16.
...
The, ultra-positive, Terrell admits she has struggled with the loss. She has spoken at some cancer functions, but finds it hard to compose herself. She looks forward to being more involved in cancer awareness as the grieving process continues.
In the fall, she did do a two-part series on the Fox 16 News about grieving and shared her experiences as well as those of a family who lost a young boy.
"It was going to be hard for me to do it because I was still grieving," Terrell said. "But it was like my daughter came to me. She doesn't come to me very much, and I don't mean to sound weird, but there is something in a relationship that never dies. Through our relationship she said, 'Mom, you need to do this because it is going to help people."
Terrell, who has worked at Fox 16 for eight years, copes with the stress of a packed schedule by weekends filled with movies. She said she regularly attends movies back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday. She likes all genres, but especially enjoys action flicks.
...
"I hope I will (get married) some day, if someone will put up with me," Terrell said. "I have friends that want to set me up, but I tell them, 'I have to get through what I am getting through.' I don't think people know how devastating losing a child is. I am kind of a basket case."Terrell said she is attracted, to smart guys, and a love of movies doesn't hurt.
With her social life on hold, she continues to serve and loves being a part of Little Rock. She has worked here longer than any of her previous stints in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
"The people are very embracing and don't treat me like I'm from Michigan, but I don't feel like I am from Michigan any more. I think I am even getting the accent," Terrell said.
