Hudson ISD dedicated a bench to Brandi Mettlen, who passed away suddenly last year of a major heart attack. Hudson held a small dedication to let Mettlen’s loved ones see the bench, located on the playground of W.F. Peavy Primary School.
Mettlen worked for Hudson ISD as a teacher’s aide and taught Sunday school for pre-school children at Harmony Hill Baptist Church, where she was a member. She was a mom of two daughters, Makayla and Gracie, and she graduated from Hudson herself, where she lived all her life.
