1/10/2012 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- The 66th Force Support Squadron captured three Air Force Materiel Command awards for 2011, including two individual and one team award.

Personnel recognized as the best in AFMC were: Senior Airman Jolene M. Johnson, who was named Installation Level Force Support Airman of the Year, and Elise M. Magsarili, who was recognized as the Operational Level Technician of the Year. The Hanscom Aero Club was named the Program of the Year.

"I am extremely proud of these folks for their accomplishment and wish them the best as they compete at the next level," said Lt. Gen. CR Davis, Electronic Systems Center commander, in an email to the workforce. "Their hard work and dedication are an inspiration to all of us at ESC."

As an Installation Personnel Readiness Journeymen for the 66th Force Support Squadron, Johnson was responsible for processing close to 200,000 personnel while deployed to Kuwait. Her accomplishments earned her the U.S. Army Commendation Medal as an Airman. She was also instrumental in initiating contact with all members from the 54 geographically separated units assigned to Hanscom in the wake of the earthquake in Japan. This Airman completed her Community College of the Air Force degree in human resources, as well.

Responsible for building the Voluntary Early Retirement Authority and Voluntary Separation Incentive Pay information link on the CenterNet, Magsarili provided an important resource to educate Hanscom personnel who may be impacted by manpower reductions within the Electronic Systems Center. As a member of the Personnel Directorate, she was crucial in training additional human resource specialists in hierarchy changes during the program executive office realignment. Magsarili successfully spearheaded an ESC-wide superior qualification guideline for hiring officials to use, which will identify new employees with superior qualifications.

As always, the 66th Force Support Squadron's Aero Club placed safety as their top priority this past year. The Aero Club flew 1,300 flying hours and 900 sorties with no safety incidents. In addition, the Aero Club built a relationship with Lincoln Labs to increase from three to eight the amount of employees participating in the flight program. The Aero Club also launched a member focus group to indentify equipment upgrades.
