In August 2020, the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) awarded METCAD 9-1-1 Supervisors Jennifer Frost and Karen Clevenger the “Patriotic Employers” Award. ESGR is a Department of Defense program that was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment,
Recipients are nominated by employees who serve in the National Guard and Frost and Clevenger were nominated by Telecommunicator Jennifer Jennings, who was deployed during the initial COVID outbreak. The award recognizes Frost and Clevenger for contributing to national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve force. Jennings specifically recognized them for their help while she was preparing to deploy and working with her so that she could get ready to leave. Congratulations!
