CCC Named Semifinalist for Freedom Award

OREGON CITY — Clackamas Community College is one of three Oregon employers named semifinalists for the 2012 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Award. The Freedom Award is the highest recognition given by the DoD to employers for exceptional support of their Guard and Reserve employees.

Nationally, 133 semifinalists were selected from among 3,236 nominees. In Oregon, Cayuse Technologies in Pendleton, and the Wal-Mart Store in Hermiston, were also named semifinalists.

The Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) will announce 2012 Freedom Award finalists in May after a review board comprised of military and civilian leaders selects the 30 most supportive employers from the semifinalists. The 15 award recipients will be announced early this summer and honored in Washington D.C. at a ceremony in September.

Under the leadership of President Joanne Truesdell, CCC has greatly increased service to veterans over the past few years including job training opportunities, credit for prior learning, dedicated counselors to work with veterans, a veterans’ club and financial aid support. The CCC Foundation established the Military Families Scholarship Endowment, providing scholarship support to the families of service members and veterans.  

The Oregon ESGR has honored CCC with both the My Boss is a Patriot Award and the Pro Patria Award. CCC was a semifinalist for the Freedom Award last year.  

“It is an honor to be nominated for the Freedom Award,” said Truesdell. “CCC is committed to helping those who have served our country achieve continued success.”
