Highland Village Police Chief Doug Reim has been elected to Special Olympics Texas' (SOTX) Board of Directors. He will hold a two-year term in his new role in the LETR position.

"I couldn't be more humbled to be part of such an outstanding organization," Reim said. "Special thanks to all of those who were part of the decision process to allow me to further serve."

"We are elated to have Doug join the SOTX Board of Directors," said Chad Tywater, SOTX board chairman. "He has demonstrated his commitment to our athletes over the past few years, and I look forward to his guidance and participation on the board."

Reim has served as a member of the SOTX President's Advisory Council since 2012 and is a member of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR).
