SS&A’s Charlot Receives National Guard Patriot Award

Travis Krimmel, SS&A Architect and a Company Commander in the Alabama National Guard, recently recognized the support of his supervisor, Shavon Charlot, by presenting her with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Patriot Award.

The Patriot Award is given to individual supervisors and “reflects the efforts made to support a guardsman and reservist through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.”

“Shavon hired me as a Project Architect knowing that I was in the National Guard,” Travis wrote in the award nomination. “She has been extremely supportive of both careers. She has been flexible with me during COVID, with my drill and training dates constantly changing. Shavon has even given me days off after long drill weekends to give me time to rest and recover. She has supported my Guard career 100 percent without ever hesitating.”

“I was completely surprised when Travis presented me with this award, but also very honored,” said Charlot, who is Vice President and Director of Architecture at SS&A. “I appreciate the hard work that Travis does, both for SS&A and for his Guard unit. Supporting his Guard duties is something that I have never questioned, and I am happy to help him succeed in both of his careers.”
