The memory of a Lucas High School junior who saved three lives while losing her own will live on during the Tournament of Roses Parade, New Year's Day in Pasadena California.

Shelby Ann Cooper was 16 when she was killed in a car accident October 21, 2004.

A floragraph of her face will be included on the Donate Life Float, to recognize her for donating her kidneys, lungs, and pancreas to separate recipients.

A ceremony was held Wednesday morning at Lucas Heritage Middle School.

Shelby's father Tim Cooper says he's honored to have his daughter recognized in this way, and says while losing 
his popular and ambitious daughter was horrible, seeing three other lives saved eases the pain.

The Cooper family created the Shelby Cooper Memorial Scholarship in 2005, and has awarded $500 to 24 Lucas graduates in that time.
