Lisa Walker was recently presented with the prestigious Patriot Award in recognition of her ongoing support of Postal Service employees who serve in the National Guard.
Walker, a supervisor at the Carol Stream, IL, Vehicle Maintenance Facility, was nominated by Tool and Parts Clerk Zavala Deangelo, a veteran who serves in the guard.
“To be considered for something like this from one of our employees — someone who has spent many hours dedicating himself to the Postal Service and our country — that’s important,” Walker said.
National Guard Brig. Gen. John Fascia, who is retired, presented Walker with the award during a ceremony at the facility.
The Patriot Award, which is administered through the Department of Defense and the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve agency, honors supervisors who provide flexible schedules, leaves of absence and other support to employees who serve in the National Guard.
