Ellenwood, GA - The Georgia Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense, announced today the vice president of support services of Silverpop was honored with a Patriot Award in recognition of extraordinary support of its employee(s) who serve in the Georgia National Guard and Reserve.
According to Rear Admiral (Ret) James McGarrah ESGR Georgia Chair, "The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nation's call to serve. Clara Hoban, vice president of support services for Silverpop was nominated for being highly supportive of the National Guard and Reserve Service by her Reserve Component employee. Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation's National Guard and Reserve units."
As the 1.3 million members of the National Guard and Reserve continue to perform an increasing number of unique missions within America's borders and beyond, ESGR will continue to be the resource for the employers of citizen warriors. ESGR recognizes outstanding support, increases awareness of the law, and resolves conflict through mediation.
