MCGHEE TYSON AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Tenn. --
Three Airmen were commended here July 7 as the I.G. Brown Training and Education Center's outstanding Senior NCO, NCO, and Civilian of the Quarter, April-June, 2015.
Col. Jessica Meyeraan, commander, announced the awardees' names in an email.
"I am proud of their subject matter expertise, professionalism and dedication to the TEC mission," said Meyeraan. "Many thanks also to the supervisors, superintendents and division chiefs for recognizing your Airmen and highlighting their accomplishments."
The Senior Noncommissioned Officer of the Quarter is Senior Master Sgt. Christine Shawhan, director of education.
Officials said that Shawhan served as the interim commandant of the Paul H. Lankford Enlisted PME Center, which included the academic needs of 567 NCO academy and Airmen leadership school students.
Additionally, Shawhan facilitated Bulgarian and Jordanian student enrollment and established English composition testing. She was also recognized for her work in a heritage dinner that honored current and former Air National Guard command chiefs.
The Civilian of the Quarter is Mr. David Barlow, graphics manager.
Officials said that Barlow directed the Air Force Network migration broadcast, which assisted bases effectively through their migrations. He helped design a popular service member awareness video segment - entitled, Did You Know - viewed on the National Guard's social media outlets. Similarly, he produced the National Guard Bureau's financial budget execution training video lauded by its financial director.
The NCO of the Quarter is Tech. Sgt. Johnathan Kelley, EPME instructor.
Officials said that Kelley developed satellite EPME facilitator training that assisted 70 Air National Guard training sites and 200 facilitators. Additionally, he helped deliver an on-camera instructor course to eight TEC instructors.
Kelley also helped organize a group visit to about 100 veterans at a Veterans Affairs facility, which also raised an estimated $1,000 in donations.
"Please join me in congratulating these Airmen," said Meyeraan.
