Steve Arnold pose for a photo at Ramsey Junior High School July 31, 2015, during a faculty luncheon. Arnold nominated Gooden and Haver for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Patriot Award to thank them for their support during his absence in the 2014 fall semester while he went through 10 weeks of training for the Arkansas Air National Guard. The Patriot Award seeks to honor individual supervisors who support citizen warriors through a range of measures including flexible schedules, time off for training and deployments, caring for families and leave of absences if necessary. Arnold is a 188th Force Support Squadron personnel officer. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Staff Sgt. Hannah Dickerson/Released)
