Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit serving America’s military families®, recently named its San Antonio-based human resources manager as Employee of the Year. Kimberly Robinson received the award, announced during the organization’s 2018 Leadership Conference held in San Antonio.
“I am thrilled to announce Kim Robinson for our highest annual honor, our Employee of the Year,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront. “As always, choosing just one individual to recognize is an extraordinarily difficult task, but Kim can take great pride in knowing she has been selected to represent such an incredibly talented staff. On behalf of all who have had the opportunity to work with her, I want to thank her for her unwavering commitment to the Operation Homefront team and the military families we seek to serve.”
