Being Inspired and Involved

Hello! My name is Kara Bell and I graduated from Texas State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communications – Electronic Media. While attending Texas State , I was involved in a Sorority – Sigma Lambda Gamma. While in the sorority and even now, I participated in numerous activities within the community. I've participated in Adopt a Highway, Bobcat Build, and the Komen Race for the Cure.

I have been a member of St. James Episcopal Church my entire life and over the last few years I have become active with the Church and the nursery, caring for children during the services. I met Ora Houston as a member of St. James.


I feel that it is important to be involved in the community for so many reasons but a few of the main ones is to get out and be a part of your community, and meet the people that are involved that want the same for the community as you do. The most rewarding part is getting people involved that were not as involved before.

Ora is an amazing  person for various reasons. I have had many projects/campaigns of my own and Ora has been a knowledgeable resource in getting me any type of help I needed. Ora is an active member in our community and I have watched her lend a helping hand to so many others on so many different occasions for years now. I have witnessed Ora participate in the church choir as well as serve our church community.

She is not only a huge influence on me, but I also feel that she would be a tremendous asset to our community at city hall.
