Ferrellgas Partners L.P., one of the nation's largest propane distributors (with an office in Campbellsville), was recently nominated for the 2008 Employer Support Freedom Award.

The award is given annually by the U.S. Secretary of Defense National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve to honor American employers of National Guard or Reserve members for their exceptional support above the requirements of federal law.

According to a letter signed by the Executive Director of the ESGR, L. Gordon Summer, Jr., the nomination demonstrates appreciation for the exceptional leadership, support and personal devotion Ferrellgas provides to the National Guard and Reserve.

"We are honored to be nominated for this prestigious award," said Service Center General Manager Sidney Gullion. "We know that anyone can help make a difference, which is why we take pride in supporting our employees' quest for success, especially when it comes to those employees and their families currently doing their part to keep our country safe."

The Freedom Award is the highest in a series of ESGR awards that include the Patriot Award, the Above and Beyond Award, and the Pro Patria Award. The 2008 recipients will be announced mid summer and honored in Washington, D.C., at the 13th annual Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award ceremony Sept. 18.
