We are continuing a series of posts highlighting the awards recipients for the 2015 Hometown Heroes Celebration put on by the American Red Cross of West Michigan. Each year the American Red Cross celebrates the community heroes who inspire us through their commitment to service and their recognition of the humanity of their neighbors down the street, across the country, and around the world. The event will be held on Thursday, April 30 from 6:00PM-10:00PM at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. For ticket information please visit our Hometown Heroes event page.
The American Red Cross is proud to honor Jamie Hamming with the General George Marshall Patriot Award for the 2015 Hometown Heroes Celebration. This award recognizes an individual or a group of individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in service to the United States of America and in service to our men and women in uniform. There is no doubt Jamie has done just that.
In 2013, Jamie founded the Veteran Explorers Program with Spectrum Health which provides opportunities to veterans who are interested in the health care industry. The program allows veterans to go through a 10 week rotation between three departments in order to find the best fit for their skills.
