Chicago native, former journalist and author, Mitchard is best known for "The Deep End of the Ocean," the inaugural selection of the Oprah Winfrey Book Club. Now a resident of Cape Cod, the award-winning author of more than a dozen works teaches creative writing at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Keller ISD student athletes and band members from two KISD high schools, Fossil Ridge (FRHS) and Central High (CHS) may volunteer to participate in a randomized clinical study during the 2016-2017 school year in which electrocardiograms (ECGs) will be used to determine if they are useful in flagging students at risk of suffering sudden cardiac death.
The North Texas ECG Pilot Study involves voluntary participation from students at all four of KISD’s high schools, but at Keller High and Timber Creek High School volunteer student athletes and band members will receive the standard history and physical required, and at FRHS and CHS band students and athletes will be given an ECG in addition to the history and physical. All of the student participants will then be followed for four years.
