PALMYRA, Wis. (July 7, 2016)—Wisconsin Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR®), an office of the Department of Defense, announced that Standard Process Inc. and Solid Dose Supervisor Peggy Race were honored in recognition of proactive efforts to support Wisconsin Army National Guard Spc. Stephanie Wardin, who serves in the 135th Medical Company based in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Race accepted the Patriot Award, while Dean Ploch, Standard Process plant manager, was honored for signing a Statement of Support for the National Guard and Reserve on behalf of Standard Process.

The presentation took place June 23 during a brief ceremony held at the corporate headquarters of Standard Process, located in Palmyra, Wisconsin.

“Our individual freedoms rest on the men and women who defend our country,” said Race when receiving her award. “I am honored to work for Standard Process and have a team of employees who together support Stephanie Wardin’s sacrifices in defending those freedoms.”

Wardin, a resident of Mukwonago, Wisconsin, has worked at Standard Process for eight years. She nominated her supervisor Race, as well as Standard Process, for the ESGR honors because of the support she has received following her decision to enlist in 2013. During her service time, whenever Wardin needed to leave for duty, it was not an issue for Race or Standard Process.

“Peggy has never complained and wishes me luck when I leave for duty, even when it is for short notice trainings and additional duties,” Wardin said. “I am grateful that Standard Process encourages my military career, as well as supporting my civilian one.”

According to Wisconsin ESGR Committee Chairman Dave Gapinski, who presented the awards to Race and Standard Process, “Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s guard and reserve units.”

ESGR is a Department of Defense Office established in 1972 to develop and promote civilian employer support for guard and reserve service. It advocates relevant initiatives, recognizes outstanding support, increases awareness of applicable laws, and resolves conflict between service members and employers. Paramount to ESGR's mission is encouraging the employment of guardsmen and reservists who bring integrity, global perspective and proven leadership to the civilian workforce.
