MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) - The Illinois American Legion has honored two associates at the Illinois Department of Employment Security, one of them is from Murphysboro.
Tim Scarbrough who works in the Murphysboro office and Michael Ruffner who works in the Woodstock office in McHenry County were honored for their effort to help unemployed military veterans return to work.
They each received an Employment Service Award which recognizes individuals who excel in providing job counseling, testing and placement assistance to unemployed or underemployed veterans.
“Our society owes a special debt to our Veterans. One way the Department of Employment Security attempts to repay that debt is to have Veterans helping Veterans,” IDES Director Jay Rowell said.
