MILTON — Pennsylvania Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense program, announced that Dr. Charles Bomboy, of the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit (CSIU), was honored Thursday, Oct. 10, with a Patriot Award in recognition of his exceptional support of the center’s employees serving in the Pennsylvania Guard and Reserves.

According to William Burkhard ESGR Pennsylvania North Central Area Chair, “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.” Bomboy was nominated for the Patriot Award by Specialist (SPC) Jeffrey Myers, who is currently deployed with the Pennsylvania Army Nation- al Guard.

In his Patriot Award nomination, SPC Myers states in part: “Bomboy has been extremely supportive and encouraging of my service as a Pennsylvania Army National Guardsman... when scheduling conflicts arise between my civilian and military career, he works quickly and effectively to ensure I have a substitute teacher available for the time I will be absent. When I told Dr. Bomboy that my unit will be deploying this year, with- out hesitation, he congratu- lated me and worked endlessly to ensure I am supported by my school, coworkers and administration.”
