Crotched Mountain honored for support of employee serving in National Guard
In 2011 he joined the New Hampshire National Guard. He was deployed to Afghanistan last year as a member of the 237th Military Police Company, NH National Guard.
Crotched Mountain president and CEO Don Shumway, residential supervisor Benjamin Drew, human resources benefit coordinator Deirdre Grimes and director of human resources Lorrie Rudis were honored in a ceremony Thursday at Crotched Mountain.
“I nominated Don Shumway and Lorrie Rudis because they were really good about reaching out while I was over there, especially when I got back. They welcomed me home and sat me down to see how they could help me,” Eldridge said Thursday.
Drew, who is Eldridge’s direct supervisor, took every phone call Eldridge made to him, Eldridge said.
Grimes kept in touch with Eldridge through letters and email. She also surprised him by writing about him in the company newsletter in which she included his email address.
