The Creswell Chronicle reported on the event. Catch up with the coverage with these excerpts from the article in the April 16. 2015 edition.

Creswell Middle School Principal Shirley Burrus was honored at the April 8 Creswell School Board Meeting, when Brigadier General Norm Hoffman, U.S. Army (Retired) made a special appearance to recognize for her service as a patriotic employer. 

“The patriot award is given for employers, specifically supervisors, who provide things like flexible schedules when necessary, time off after deployment or to go to training, that care for families and grant absences if leave is needed,” Gen. Hoffman added. “This staff member extended herself to do everything possible to help their employee succeed in both military and civilian careers, because nobody should be forced to chose between them.” - Brigadier General Norm Hoffman, U.S. Army (Retired), Oregon Chairman for Employer Support of the National Guard and Reserve
