Michael Carroll Saves the Day

May 23, 2017

Yesterday, Express Yourself volunteer and former youth participant, Michael Carroll, was honored at the Massachusetts State Police Spring Awards Ceremony. Michael and nearly two dozen people, including State Troopers, firefighters, and private citizens, were honored for lifesaving actions performed during 10 separate incidents or emergencies during the summer, fall and early winter. Michael works for the Mass State Department of Traffic and was on duty when he was alerted that there was an unconscious person in need of medical attention.  While providing assistance, he identified that the person was experiencing a drug overdose and immediately called for an officer to administer Narcan.  Michael began participating with Express Yourself as a student at the Solstice School 16 years ago and continued on to become a youth mentor.  He was notable in the studio as an extremely helpful and capable member of the Express Yourself family.  We are proud of the work he does at the state Department of Traffic helping others in emergency situations.
