Since then, his parents, Ward and Lydia, have promoted organ, tissue and eye donation.

Wednesday, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson will present both of them with a shining star award for their actions.

Evan, a recent graduate of Ogemaw Heights High School in Ogemaw County saved five lives through organ donation.
