Sarah heads the Lower School at The Oakridge School in Arlington, Texas, with 144-students.

When she learned Nate Jones, the father of three of her students had kidney failure and was on dialysis three days a week to keep him alive, she felt compelled to do something.

Nate, in his early 40's and his wife Amenze, are the parents of 3rd grader William, 4th grader and big sister Sydney, and 8th grader and older brother Aaron.

"And to think they could lose their dad when they're just kids in school, I just want them to have their dad," Sarah told TV station WFAA.

"Of course, I didn't want to be the person to give a kidney - who wants to go into surgery and do something crazy like that."

For months, Sarah struggled with the fears and anxiety of donating a kidney. But then she boldly agreed to undergo testing to see if she was a match.

Sarah was a match, and on January 13, 2020 the transplant was performed at UT Southwestern Medical Center. It succeeded!

"Bless you. Bless you. Bless you," Nate told Sarah afterward as tears streamed down his cheeks. "I never thought this day would come."

"How do I pay her back?" Nate asked aloud. "I can't. I can't pay her back. It runs through my mind. What can you do to thank her for this? Words aren't enough."

Sarah's answer:

"There's something bold for you to do. God will give it to you. You've got a good kidney now. Just go forward and do what you need to do."
