Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE -

Hope, Ark.—Arkansas Em­ployer Sup­port of the Guard and Re­serve, a Depart­ment of De­fense op­er­a­tional com­mit­tee, an­nounced that Ron Ster­ling and Wade Kim­mel of the Arkansas Child Sup­port En­force­ment Ser­vice were hon­ored with a Pa­triot Award in recognition of ex­tra­or­di­nary sup­port of its em­ploy­ees serv­ing in the Arkansas Guard and Re­serve.

“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. Ster­ling and Kim­mel were nom­i­nated for be­ing highly sup­port­ive of the Na­tional Guard by their Re­serve Com­po­nent em­ployee, SSG Mae McKin­non.

Sup­port­ive su­per­vi­sors are crit­i­cal to main­tain­ing the strength and readi­ness of the na­tion’s Guard and Re­serve units,” ac­cord­ing to Paul G. Hen­ley, South­west Arkansas ESGR Chair­man.

“SSG McKin­non nom­i­nated Ster­ling and Kim­mel for the award for their com­mit­ment to go above and be­yond to sup­port her as a mem­ber of the Arkansas Na­tional Guard while de­ployed and dur­ing her other mil­i­tary obli­ga­tions.

“McKin­non said they truly un­der­stand what it means to be a mem­ber of the U.S. Armed Forces.

“Both are em­ploy­ees of the Arkansas Child Sup­port En­force­ment Of­fice. Ron Ster­ling is the OCSC pro­gram su­per­vi­sor for eight coun­ties in south­west Arkansas, and Wade Kim­mel is an at­tor­ney spe­cial­ist for Hemp­stead and Ne­vada coun­ties,” Hen­ley said.
