Local Business Participates in Show-Me-Heroes Program

A local business in Washington that has hired military veterans under the Show-Me-Heroes program received the Flag of Freedom award from Governor Jay Nixon on September 17, 2012. The governor presented the designation to Clemco Industries at a ceremony that was held at the business. The Show-Me-Heroes program, which was established by Governor Nixon in January 2010, is designed to connect military veterans with job opportunities when they return home from service. The program is administered by the Missouri Division of Workforce Development, showcases businesses that are willing and eager to hire veterans. About 15 veterans work at the Clemco Facility, including company president, Arnie Sallaberry. One of the veterans at Clemco, Nathan Derstine, is currently deployed in Afghanistan as a member of the Missouri National Guard. Employers who wish to participate in Show-Me-Heroes can visit the state’s website, MO.GOV, to register.
