Highway Commission Honors Lasley With Heroism Award
When Missouri Department of Transportation Maintenance Worker Micah Lasley was plowing snow on Route Z in Calwood on Feb. 10, probably the last thing he thought he would be doing that day would be aiding an elderly couple whose home was on fire. But that is exactly what Lasley did that day in February.
The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission honored Lasley today with a Meritorious Safety Award, the highest safety award presented by MoDOT and the commission. The award recognizes employees or members of the public for life-saving actions taken during an emergency or life-threatening event.
