Sandy Springs Honored with Patriot Award

Release Date: 12/6/2010

December 6, 2010—The City of Sandy Springs received a ‘Patriot’ Award for support of its employees who serve in the Georgia National Guard and Reserve from Georgia Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (GA ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense.

“We are tremendously proud of our associates who not only work for us but also serve their country in the military reserve forces,” said Sandy Springs City Manager John McDonough. “Military reservists are trained leaders and have a great sense of responsibility. Also, the technical training they receive in the military is second to none. I’m thrilled to have these folks on our team.”

The “Patriot Award” is the first award in a sequential and progressive employer awards program. It is intended specifically for the recognition of individual supervisors or the employer organization as a whole. Patriot Award nominations may come only from Reserve component (RC) members or their spouses/immediate family members.
