(CONROE, Texas) July 11, 2016 – FASTSIGNS International, Inc., a sign and visual graphics franchisor of more than 615 FASTSIGNS® centers worldwide, was recently named a recipient of the 2016 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, which is the highest recognition given by the U.S. government that honors organizations for outstanding support of employees serving in the Reserve or Guard.
Lisa and Chris Farr, franchisees of the FASTSIGNS location in Conroe, Texas, are also proud to support military service men and women in the community including their own employees who have served.
FASTSIGNS of Conroe’s newest employee, Steve Schaefer, is a member of the National Guard. Within his first month of working as the center’s Outside Sales Professional, Schaefer attended his annual two-week Guard training and was surprised to receive full pay while he was away.
