WFSB GM Klarn DePalma, Photographer and National Guard member Rory Black, Bette Slowther and Media Operations Manager Frank Glowski
ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -
WFSB's Media Operations Manager, Frank Glowski, was honored Thursday with a Service Member Patriot Award.
The Patriot Award honors supervisors for their support of National Guard and Reserve employees.
Nominations must come from a National Guard or Reserve family member.
WFSB photographer Rory Black nominated Glowski for demonstrating his commitment to all WFSB's employees that defend the United States as members of the National Guard or Reserve.
Glowski's participation required him to acknowledge the Statement of Support program, which is a cornerstone of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
That program aims to develop employers into advocates for employee participation in the military.
Recipients of the award follow three key guidelines:
To recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act
To provide their leadership with the resources necessary to effectively manage Guard and Reserve employees
To continually recognize and support service members and their families in peace, crisis and war
The Patriot Award reflects the all the efforts made to support citizen warriors 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.
All of us here at Channel 3 Eyewitness News would like to thank Rory Black for defending the United States of America, and Frank Glowski for his continued support.
