Mississippi state troopers, Maj. Ken Brown and Capt. James Kelly, were recognized by Donate Life Mississippi for their efforts to register more Mississippians as organ, eye and tissue donors.

“Maj. Brown and Capt. Kelly have been instrumental in increasing donor designations in Mississippi through driver services,” said Chuck Stinson, the director of community services and relations for Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency. “DPS is responsible for 98% of the registrations across the state and this year we have seen a 2% increase in registrations per encounter thanks to the efforts of Maj. Brown, Capt. Kelly and their examiners.”

DPS examiners are required by law to ask those receiving a new Mississippi Driver’s License or renewing a current one if they wish to be an organ, eye and tissue donor. To date, the DPS has registered nearly 745,000 of the 760,000+ Mississippians registered to be organ, eye and tissue donors. Continue reading
