Four Oaks has a long history of supporting our team members who serve our country in the Armed Forces. Recently, Mason City staff member Jake Mitchell was honored for the support, compassion and flexibility he provided to a former Four Oaks employee that he supervised who serves in the Iowa National Guard.Jake received the Patriot Award from the Iowa Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) in recognition of understanding the employee’s commitment to the National Guard. This special award is only given when a member or veteran of the Guard or Reserve nominates a co-worker or supervisor for his or her support. In Jake’s case he, along with the entire team in Mason City, exhibited considerable compassion and flexibility in assisting a fellow team member prior to deployment and in accommodating his special needs upon his return.
In additional to the Patriot Award, Jake also received the Area Chairman Award from the local ESGR Chapter. Four Oaks Mason City was also recognized for their support of the Armed Forces.
We would like to congratulate Jake on his award and thank him for his support of the Armed Forces. Four Oaks would also like to thank all members and veterans of the Armed Forces for their service to our country.
