McGHEE TYSON AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Tenn. -- A servicemember assigned to The I.G. Brown Air National Guard Training and Education Center received the commander's Patriot Award during the monthly fitness training session at Wilson Hall here, Oct. 27.

Col. Richard B. Howard presented his award to Master Sgt. Kevin J. Przewrocki, the unit physical fitness coordinator, for recognition of his contributions to the mission of the center.

The Patriot Award is Howard's personal award to show appreciation for those he feels have gone above and beyond in their service.

As the physical fitness coordinator, Przewrocki is responsible for the overall management of the 20,000 square foot Wilson Hall fitness center.  It used by the base population and more than 4,200 students who attend courses here each year.

"Master Sgt. Przewrocki is the personification of our Air Force's Core Values," said Howard, "Excellence, Service before Self, and Integrity in All We Do...His focus and dedication, no matter what the job, is one of total commitment."

"Since his assignment to all-things-Wilson Hall, he has demonstrated these core values not by words, but action," said Howard. "Never before has Wilson Hall sparkled so brightly nor functioned so well. Sergeant Przewrocki leads by example and adheres to the values we hold central to military service. It's an honor to work with him."

Przewrocki assumed his current position in July 2009, following the departure of the Academy of Military Science, the Air National Guard's officer commissioning program, to Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala. He was previously the training manager/student affairs coordinator for AMS and assisted in the commissioning of more than 3,000 second lieutenants in the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves.
