Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), A U.S. Department of Defense program, awarded BCFS Health and Human Services-Baytown’s Program Director Kenneth Williams the ESGR’s Patriotic Employer Award as an ally for his focus on hiring veterans and active reservists of the military.

BCFS-Baytown’s Administrator On Duty Pedro Martinez, an Air Force reservist, nominated Kenneth, who accepted the ESGR’s Statement of Support Certificate from ESGR-Texas Ombudsman Director George Nami at the BCFS-Baytown campus.

“It’s very important to hire and maintain a diverse employee pool that includes reservists and veterans,” says Kenneth. “Their commitment to our country says a lot about them. You can find great diligence and teamwork among these individuals, and these are key elements in accomplishing our goals.”

Kenneth has worked for BCFS Health and Human Services for more than a year. As Program Director in Baytown, he oversees the facility’s important operational details to ensure that each child entrusted to our care has their needs met on a daily basis. Kenneth is a Licensed Child Care Administrator and a Certified Assisted Living Administrator.

The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) was established in 1972 by the Department of Defense to promote cooperation between U.S. military reserve members and their civilian employers to help resolve conflicts that arise from an employee’s military commitment.

Congratulations, Kenneth, and congratulations to BCFS-Baytown for their commitment to the employment of our nation’s real-life heroes, our soldiers and veterans.
