MCGHEE TYSON AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Tenn. --
Senior Master Sgt. William Britt and Tech. Sgt. Timothy Fry earned recognition as the senior NCO and NCO for the fourth quarter, respectively, said the commander here in a Jan. 6 announcement.
"Please join me in congratulating these high-quality Airmen," said Col. Jessica Meyeraan, in a campus-wide email.
"Their performance is inspiring and their impact within, and outside, our organization has been profoundly positive," said Meyeraan.
Britt is assigned as the campus operations superintendent.
Officials said that Britt oversaw a management transition for campus lodging to the TEC and the Air National Guard Readiness Center, which included $2.4 million in funding. He obligated $100,000 to upgrade the Wilson Hall activities building with fitness equipment, lockers and other items. He also negotiated $75,000 for a classroom wireless internet system; he served as vice president of the TEC's Top III Association; and he supported fund-raising efforts for the holiday party, among other efforts.
Fry is assigned as an enlisted professional military education instructor.
Officials said that Fry made important improvements to the honor flight program for the Paul H. Lankford Enlisted PME Center. He also advocated for participation in the area's annual POW/MIA run/walk event, which raised $6,000 in donations; and he volunteered as president of the local Air Force Sergeants Association, among other efforts.
The awardees get their photos displayed in Patriot Hall's main lobby. They receive a time-off award, special parking and recognition during the next commander's call assembly, which hands out a special plaque donated by the Heritage Committee.
