A Patriotic Employer Award was presented on July 27, to Grundy County Sheriff Clint Shrum. Sheriff Shrum was nominated by Deputy Jeff Johnson a Sergeant with A Troop, 278th ACR, Tennessee Army National Guard, in Dunlap. Johnson noted Shrum’s support for all his National Guard and Reserve member employees. Drill weekends and annual training are all supported, including the necessary time to rest before returning to his night shift duties. Johnson feels his supervisor goes above and beyond his responsibilities in seeing he and his family are supported and taken care of while he is performing his military duties.
