Smithfield, RI – The Founder and CEO of High Purity New England, Mark Sitcoske, was presented today with a Patriot Award by recently promoted Single-Use Technologies, Engineering Manager, Molly Sargent. Molly has been a part of the Vermont Air National Guard since 2012, with a role in Engineering, and recently returned from a deployment overseas.


Molly nominated Mark for this award in November of 2020, and presented it to him during a ceremony at the HPNE main headquarters this morning after returning to work in September. The Patriot Award recognizes supervisors and bosses who have provided support to a Guardsman during their time in the service. When asked why she decided to nominate him for this honor, Molly said, “Mark demonstrated his support by going above and beyond employer requirements; he provided reassurance for myself during a time that I was executing missions overseas. His contribution extends past myself, to hundreds more, which is why I chose to nominate him for this award.”
