The U.S. Department of Labor announced this week that SPA received the 2019 HIRE Vets Medallion—Gold Award for large employers – recognizing the company’s commitment to recruit, hire, and retain veterans. This is the second year this program has been in effect.

“We are extremely honored that for the second year in a row the Department of Labor has recognized our actions in support of our nation’s veterans,” said Dr. William Vantine, SPA president and CEO. “We are proud of the commitment to national service of our veterans and are pleased to be able to provide them the opportunity to continue serving the country as part of the SPA team.
