Celebrating Wyoming DMV Appreciation and Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week

Governor Matt Mead has signed a proclamation declaring this week, Sept. 25-29, 2017 as DMV Appreciation Week and Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week in the state of Wyoming. As part of the celebration, and to say thank you to the Departments of Motor Vehicles (DMVs), administrators and licensing partners across the state for their partnership and commitment to asking each customer to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor, we have awarded each Wyoming Driver License Office with a copy of the proclamation.

WY DMV Appreciation Week

“The Wyoming Division of Motor Vehicles does a great job educating people during the process of obtaining or renewing a Wyoming driver license. A decision to be an organ and tissue donor is reflected on the license,” said Governor Mead. “Being a donor helps save lives—48 Wyomingites received lifesaving organ transplants in 2016. Being a donor is something everyone should consider.”

All week, we will be showing appreciation and saying thank you to staff and leadership of DMVs and driver licensing partners in our community through local events and outreach. Thank you to our DMV partners for helping to save lives every day!
