Eagle Award Winners Go Above and Beyond to Support Veterans

The Department of Workforce Services has hundreds of individuals who are dedicated to helping veterans access the resources they need in order to find employment, but there are a few who go above and beyond to serve veterans.

Each year five individuals are honored for their extraordinary efforts to serve veterans in their community, and receive an Eagle Award. Their efforts have made a great impact on the veterans they have served.

The Eagle Award winners for 2018 are:
