Catalyst Honors First Responders In Local Field of Honor Event

Here at Catalyst we’re all about supporting First Responders and we couldn’t be more proud to support the local Bedford County Field of Honor event.

This event was coordinated by the Rotary Club of Forest VA which arranged over 500 U.S. flags to honor Police, First Responders, EMTs, Firefighters, Active Duty Military and Veterans. These flags were proudly displayed on the lawn of a local sponsoring company. Each flag was sponsored by area businesses and individuals to honor their chosen first responders.

To support this event, we chose to honor two individuals.

We honored Sgt. Ryan Hilbish in the Field of Honor event. Sgt. Hilbish has served the citizen’s of Bedford County with distinction since October 1, 2000. After the flags were displayed, Catalyst president Robin Grier presented Sgt. Hilbish with his flag in a small ceremony.

We also honored our own John Kramer.

John is a marine and has strongly contributed to Catalyst’s mission to serve First Responders with his dedication to our customers and sales activities.

Congratulations to Sgt. Ryan Hilbish and John Kramer and thank you for your service!
