Waupaca Foundry Earns Patriot Award Waupaca Foundry Inc. (Wau-


paca, Wisconsin), a Hitachi Metals company, received the Patriot Award in recognition of support of employees serving in the Army Reserves. Kyle Myszka, a metal- lurgist at the Marinette ductile iron foundry, nominated supervisor Joe Keske and Human Resources Manager Phil Eatherton for being supportive while he served in Army Reserves officer candidate school. Myszka graduated with a


master’s degree in material science from Michigan Technological Uni- versity and began employment with Waupaca Foundry in June 2015. He worked with plant leaders to plan a path for military service and entered officer candidate school in August 2016. It is Waupaca Foundry’s policy to hold all jobs open for employees engaged in ac- tive military service.


Approximately 11% of the found-


ry’s 4,400 workers nationwide are veterans of the armed services. “We are proud and honored that


Kyle is working with us and that he selected military service as a path in his life,” Eatherton said. “As a veteran myself, I know the sacrifices families make and worrying about losing a job should not be one of them.” Te Patriot Award is only pre- sented to employers who not only hire Guard and Reserve members, but also demonstrate superior support to mili- tary employees and their families. Tis is the second time Waupaca Foundry has been honored with the award, previously being nominated by team member, Tomas Walecki. Walecki’s supervisor Darrell Bartel was nomi- nated for being highly supportive and respectful of his team member while he was on active duty. “We are proud to employ veterans


and team members who serve in the Army National Guard and Reserves,” said Joey Leonard, executive vice president of human resources. “Te commitment and teamwork they learn in the military directly translates to our work environment.”
