Sgt. Scott Lawrence of the Byram Police dutifully served his community for over 25 years. But after suffering an anoxic brain injury during a surgery to fix an on-the-job neck injury, he was told he would never be a police officer again.
With the help of inpatient therapy at Methodist Rehabilitation Center and a year of intensive therapy with MRC’s Quest Program, Lawrence defied all expectations.
Now he’s back to full duty at the Byram PD in his senior role as Training Officer in Charge.
