ESGR in the News


BURNSVILLE, Minn. – Executive Officer 1st Lt. Ben Rurup, 1133rd Transportation Company, Minnesota Army National Guard, presented the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Patriot Award to his supervisor Tara Shaw of Keyot.

The award was given Nov. 17 in recognition of Keyot’s support of their employees’ service to the Minnesota National Guard. Rurup was very appreciative of Keyot’s support and assistance with his Guard deployments and wanted to honor Keyot.

He stated, “Keyot has reacted with grace and been incredibly supportive; they have told me to go and do what is needed and would take care of what was required on their end to support me.” ESGR is an agency of the Department of Defense which seeks to foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.
