Senture LLC honored by Department of Defense

Extraordinary support of employees who serve in the Guard, Reserve

London, Ky. – The Kentucky Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the United States Department of Defense, announced today that Chris Deaton and Scott Noble of Senture LLC in London, Ky., were honored with a Patriot Award in recognition of extraordinary support of their employees who serve in the Kentucky National Guard and Reserve.

According to Ralph Brown, ESGR Area 5 chairman, who presented the award, “The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nation’s call to serve.

Chris Deaton, who received two awards, was nominated for being highly supportive of the Kentucky National Guard and Reserve by E3 Estus Hibbard of London, a member of the ARNG, 149th In., and by Sgt. Joseph Little of Monticello, a member of the USAR, 100th Div. (OS).

Scott Noble was also nominated for being highly supportive of the Kentucky National Guard and Reserve by Sgt. Little.

Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s National Guard and Reserve units.

Sgt. Little had this to say about Deaton:  “Mr. Deaton and the entire management staff at Senture LLC have always been enthusiastically supportive of my Reserve duty, despite having given very short notice on more than one occasion.  Also, each time I have returned from duty, I have always gotten a warm welcome.  Veteran’s Day is always observed at Senture and prayers are offered each day for military members and their families during prayer meetings.  I can say with absolute honesty that Senture is the most military-friendly employer I have every had the pleasure to work for.”   He continued, having this to say about Noble; “Mr. Noble, the IT director at Senture LLC has always supported me and even applauded my service, even when being called on orders with little or no notice.  My Reserve service has only helped my career with Senture LLC, not impaired it.  Not many employers can truly make that claim.”

As the 1.3 million members of the National Guard and Reserve continue to perform an increasing number of unique missions with America’s borders and beyond. ESGR will continue to be the resource for the employers of citizen warriors.  For more information, visit www.wsgr.mil.
