The office of the Secretary of Defense recognized Lamar CISD and singled out one employee for contributing to the nation’s security.

Eva Zamora was honored March 9 as a “Patriotic Employer” by the Secretary of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program for going “above and beyond” in her duties in the Lamar CISD Payroll Department.

Zamora was nominated by Marcus Halsey, a special education teacher at Lamar Junior High. Halsey credited Zamora with allowing for him to serve in the National Reserve without some of the worries consuming others in his unit.

“From talking to other guys, I know that Eva did way more than could be expected by an employer,” Halsey said.

Halsey said Zamora kept in constant contact during his deployment, keeping him abreast not only on the status of his paycheck, but also his employee benefits.

Wyvette McLendon, the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Program’s Area Chair for Texas, also presented the District a Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve, highlighting Lamar CISD’s pledge to support our troops.
