The National Committee for Employee Support of the National Guard and Reserve (ESGR) recently presented a Patriot Award to Mark Beekhuizen, Director of Information Technology. Beekhuizen accepted the award on behalf of the College of Law for its continued support of National Guard members and their families. Beekhuizen was nominated for this award by one of the College’s staff members, Oliver Tsuya, who is an active member of the Army National Guard. Over the past few years, Sgt. Tsuya required time away from his job on the College’s technology services team in order to fulfill his military obligation. Beekhuizen worked to insure that Sgt. Tsuya’s IT duties were appropriately dispersed and that his position would be available upon his return.
