LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – Trooper Micah May of the Nevada State Police Highway Patrol will be recognized in one of the country’s most spectacular and famous parades early next year for his organ donation after being slain in the line of duty in Las Vegas.
May, 46, died on July 29, 2021, from injuries sustained two days earlier when he was hit by a stolen automobile during a police chase. May was laying spike strips on I-15 near Sahara Avenue in an effort to halt the suspect’s car.
On Jan. 2, 2023, May will be honored on a Donate Life float in the 134th annual Rose Parade in Pasadena, California.
The float will be themed “Lifting Each Other Up,” and the centerpiece will be a Chinese street dragon. On the float, there will be 44 memorial floragraphs, which are portraits of people created of floral and other natural elements. One of them will be dedicated to the month of May. His relatives and friends will assist him in decorating the floragraph.
May had been a member of the Nevada State Police for 13 years when he died. He received two Medals of Valor throughout his career.
The Nevada Donor Network said, “Micah’s impact will forever live on through those who were able to receive his organs.”
