When you see FOX16's Donna Terrell take her spot in the anchor chair every weeknight, she won't be wearing a hair net.
Terrell was approached regarding membership and was inducted in June 2009.
"Someone thought that maybe, just maybe, I would make a good Link," Terrell says, "and because they believed in me, I have spent these last five years trying to do everything that I can to follow through on that belief."
Terrell and team donned the traditional lunch lady attire to serve guests healthy options, while also measuring BMI and giving away activity-promoting items like basketballs and jump ropes.
We just feel like it must be done," Terrell says. "And if you go into some neighborhoods and you mention the Little Rock Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, they know exactly who we are."
Her passion for community service may have been what initially got her involved in the chapter, but she soon learned that being a Link means much more than fulfilling a number of community service hours.
In 2011, Terrell lost her daughter Queah, 34, after a long battle with colon cancer, a devastating loss that her fellow Links helped her through.
It's that same drive to serve that Terrell often gives her own time to. Her career in broadcast involves somewhat of an expectation for work in the community, something that makes many groan, but that she considers a perk.
Even in past cities, before her life as a Link, Terrell has made volunteer work a priority. She often finds herself going beyond expectations set by any establishment. With this mindset, when the opportunity came along for her to join the Little Rock chapter, it was "a no-brainer."
"I decided as a young adult that doing something for someone other than myself, other than my family, to help people in need was going to be important to me," she says.
Somewhere along the line, however, Terrell became somewhat of a prominent public figure, though she doesn't see herself as such, literally laughing at the idea. It's not a rarity to get asked to be a part of various community service activities or emcee events or judge chili cook-offs.
Yes, she's a newsperson whose job is to tell the public about things. Yes, she's used to being invited to events and met with disappointment at the lack of a television crew. However, in true Link form, the prominence and the publicity are never her focus.
"No, I'm the messenger. That's all I am. I just interview people of prominence," Terrell said. "But if I am those other things, it's not because that's what I set out to do. It is because I got into a business where I thought maybe I could do something good, or be good at this and end up helping people."
In her world, the community service, The Links, her career: It's all seamless. Everything Terrell does is about telling stories and serving people. When asked if she's the Donna Terrell from FOX16, of course the answer is yes, but waving her title on a banner isn't a thought, especially when there's chili to judge.
But if Terrell is stressed about it, it doesn't show. Her focus is on balancing putting on a nice event with keeping the purpose of the event at the forefront, making sure their supporters have faith in the organization's ability to do good work.
When the event is over, no matter who was there or who is or isn't talking about it, the most important thing to Terrell is that The Links continue their mission. She has confidence that the story will be told, whether it be by a larger press vehicle or by word of mouth from the families they help. It is simply the kind of need that doesn't go away or ever lose its weight.
But for now, there is work to be done and Terrell is there to roll up her sleeves, determined not to lose perspective.
