Fort Collins, Colo. -- Kristin Davis, Program Coordinator for SummitStone Health Partners, recently received the Patriot Award from Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. Davis was nominated by Administrative Support Staff Katie Faris, E-4 Specialist with the Army Reserve 409th Engineering Company based in Windsor, Colo.
ESGR is a Department of Defense program established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers. ESGR volunteer, Mike Bennett, presented the Patriot Award, which recognizes the efforts made to support guard and reservists through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed.
“Kristin has been remarkably supportive over the last three years as I served my country,” Faris said. "From any last minute changes to two-week trainings that end up going a little longer than planned, she has always helped me, as an employee and a service member, to focus on what's important and not to stress about things that are out of my control.”
Davis, whose father and grandfather are veterans, said she was raised with great respect for the military. “Katie has been an incredible part of the agency, and we thank her for her service to our country.”
