Benefit fund established
A benefit fund has been established through First American Bank for a Hartselle resident and teacher. Kristie Durand, 34, is an eighth grade English teacher at Hartselle Junior High School who suffered a stroke Feb. 24 in her classroom and was later admitted to Decatur General Hospital. Doctors found a myxoma heart tumor, a rare condition that most likely caused the stroke, and scheduled open-heart surgery for this week at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn. She is the wife of Jon Durand and the mother of Briley and Dillon. Donations to the Kristie Durand Benefit Fund can be made at any First American Bank location.
