03/15/2010 - Some Patriots were honored last week at Intermountain Medical Center for supporting the Utah National Guard and Reserves. The U.S. Defense Department’s “Patriot Award” is given to employers and managers who provide exceptional support to employees who are in the National Guard; it’s based on nominations by members of the Guard.
Tami Stolk, a supervisor in Phlebotomy, received one of the awards for being a patriotic employer; another award was given to Intermountain Medical Center. Tami was nominated by Rachael Kotter, a phlebotomist who’s on active duty with the Guard (and will be deployed to Afghanistan later this year). “We’re grateful for our men and women who serve and are thankful for those who support them,” said the Guard’s Richard DeWolf in the award presentation.
“This award means a lot - it’s touching and endearing,” Tami says. “My dad, grandfather, and brothers have all been in the National Guard, and it’s an honor to work with Rachael and support her in getting time off while she serves. She’s in my heart until she gets back.”
David Grauer adds: “It’s great to see Tami recognized by the Guard and by Rachael for her extra-mile support — and it’s nice for Intermountain Medical Center to be recognized as well. We know how important it is to support the men and women who are serving our country and we’re glad we can do our part.”
