The Patriot Award recognizes the contributions of civilian supervisors who support employees who are members of the National Guard and Reserves. The award reflects the efforts made to support National Guard and Reserve service members through a wide range of measures, including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.
Landers is the first UNCG supervisor to be given this award.
Dean Castaldo, associate director of Alumni Engagement and a Naval Reserve Officer, nominated Landers.
