U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) honored employees at Sealed Air Rogers today for their support of co-workers who serve in the National Guard and Reserves.
Boozman presented plaques from the Secretary of Defense to Greg Williams and Andy Morrison on behalf of Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). Williams and Morrison were nominated by two National Guardsmen who work at Sealed Air Rogers. ESGR is a Department of Defense program established in 1972 to promote understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers.
“For every Arkansan serving our nation to do their best it takes great support from friends, family and co-workers who understand their sacrifice and service,” Boozman said. “I am grateful that Sealed Air Rogers and these great Arkansans are there to back up our men and women who protect and defend us.”
During the visit Boozman toured the plant and visited with employees. He was also presented with the National Association of Manufacturers Legislative Excellence Award for support of manufacturing jobs in Arkansas and throughout the nation.
“Senator Boozman has worked hard for North American commerce, including manufacturing and agriculture. With his support, we continue to gain competitiveness and to pursue growth opportunities,” said Sealed Air Rogers plant manager Ross Tompkins. “Additionally, Senator Boozman is a strong supporter of veterans, a key component of our workforce. We thank Senator Boozman for being able to come to our plant today.”
