Whirlpool Veterans Honored With Luncheon
By Tony Wittkowski
BENTON HARBOR — Shenita Patterson didn’t know her experience in the Army would come into play when she joined Whirlpool Corp.
Four years after joining the company’s employee resource group for veterans, Patterson is appreciative of what the appliance maker has done to make her feel more at home.
“What I was so excited about was to see how they honor and support the veterans at Whirlpool. Not just on veterans Day, they go out other way to make us feel appreciative. Just out of the blue, we have people come up and say ‘Thank you for serving your country.’ That makes me feel good.”
