“Chief Ellermeyer manages to juggle an already tight schedule due to low staffing, while showing full support to several National Guard soldiers who are employed by the department,,” Bishop said in his nomination.
The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees who have answered their nation’s call to serve. Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.
“I am honored to be awarded the Patriot Award and I plan to continue supporting and employing members of the Guard and Reserve.” Ellermeyer said in a news release.
