Two managers of Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities in Europe have won Army awards in a worldwide competition.

The awards will be presented at the MWR Garrison Commanders Conference in Denver in August.

Jamie Zawadski in Vicenza, Italy, earned the James A. Carroll Jr. Award for Club Management for “increasing in overall customer participation and satisfaction for all programs at the Golden Lion Community Club,” according to an Army Europe MWR news release.

The honor is given to managers who distinguish themselves in clubs, food, beverage and entertainment venues.

Last year Zawadski organized events for families with members deployed in Iraq or Liberia.

“Ms. Zawadski’s constant pursuit of excellence, hard work and tireless efforts on behalf of the Vicenza community played a vital role in her selection for this prestigious award,” the MWR statement said.

James Einhorn in Heidelberg, Germany, won the Excellence in Management Award for an Army large bowling center.

The award is given to outstanding managers of golf, bowling, travel and recycling operations, as well as leaders in charge of the most-improved facility.

Last year Einhorn introduced an 18-hole miniature golf course and patio. He also made improvements to the Henry Village Bowling Center.

“[Einhorn] prides himself in executing quality bowling programs with excellent customer service and continually seeks new and innovative ways to provide fun, family entertainment,” the MWR statement read.

Einhorn also won the award in 1997.
