Cardinal Operating Company's Bethany Schunn and Coty Lee were recently awarded with the Patriot Award.
The Patriot Award, given under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994, is bestowed upon employers who make it easy for members of the armed services to deploy while retaining their civilian employment.
Schunn and Lee were nominated by Cardinal's Scott Law, who is currently serving in the Air Force Reserves in Kuwait. They received the award on June 6 from Beth Jackson, ombudsman manager and director of the Ohio Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
Schunn and Lee appeared on WTOV-9 in a story about the award.
