Transcript for School principal donates kidney to father of 3
Finally tonight here, the school principal and her gift. She is America strong. At this Texas school, winning is about much more than what you see on the field or in the classroom. The head of the school believes it's about what's on the inside. Regardless of how smart you are, if you're not a good person, it's not going to go anywhere positive. That is very nice. Reporter: Dr. Sarah scheckter is head of the lower school in Arlington, Texas, where much of what they teach is kindness. My 144 kids are why I get up every day. Reporter: And three of her students have learned about that kindness, that bravery, from their own principal. She is donating a kidney to save their father, ne than y'all. His son, William, in third grade, on his principal. We aren't really related, so, it's great that you're not part of my family and still doing it. Reporter: His sister, Sydney, is in fourth great. Brother Aaron in eighth. And all of them grateful. To think that they could lose their dad when they're just kids in school is so sad that I just -- that's my main thing. I just want them to have their dad. Reporter: Here they are, all together. And here is dad. Just 24 hours after surgery at UT southwestern mad call center. There she is. Reporter: Seeing his donor, the prince pal. How you feeling? Fantastic. I'm so glad. Bless you. Bless you. How do I pay her back? I can't pay her back, I just -- you know, it runs through my mind all the time. Reporter: Dad now recovering. Thank you. Reporter: And his children hugging that principal. No one was surprised that she could do something like this, and that just shows you the type of person she is. Reporter: Not only teaching kindness, but demonstrating it. Be generous, be kind, be brave. All of those things. What a principal. And what a family. All of them America strong. And we thank the team at WFAA. I'm David Muir. Good night.
