Lowell Principal Recognized for Support of National Guard

Cynthia Challberg-Hale was recently presented with a Patriot Award by the New Mexico Committee for Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve.

Cynthia Challberg-Hale principal of Lowell Elementary School, was presented with a Patriot Award by the New Mexico Committee for Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve (ESGR) on Feb. 19.

This award was given to her for contributing to "national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America's National Guard and Reserve Forces."

Lowell teacher SSgt. Elizabeth Ratliff, a member of the Army National Guard's 111th MEB, submitted Challberg-Hale for this award. Ratcliff said she is very appreciative of Challberg-Hale's support with her military training and commitments.

"Cynthia has repeatedly explained during my evaluations how she thinks my military training has improved me as a person and as a teacher. She also organized a cookie brigade within the school to send care packages to me and my unit during my deployment to Iraq."

Challberg-Hale signed a Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve pledging her support to our military forces. This Statement of Support recognizes the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to employ Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans.

"In the highest American tradition, the patriotic men and women of the Guard and Reserve serve voluntarily in an honorable and vital profession. They deserve the support of every segment of our Society," Challberg-Hale said.
