  • Clerks honored for donor awareness

    On April 13, Gov. Steven L. Beshear recognized the Circuit Court Clerks of Kentucky for their efforts to raise awareness about organ donation. He urged all Kentuckians to join the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

    “The fact is, you can be a hero. You can save a life, and not just one but many,” Beshear said.

    About 110,000 people in the United States, and more than 700 Kentuckians, are currently waiting for life-saving organ transplants. Kentucky’s Circuit Court Clerks have been active in promoting organ donation since 1992.
