3/20/2013 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- The Women's History Month committee is recognizing outstanding women around the base during March. This week's nominee is Kasie Moriarty, Deployable Radar Approach Control assistant deputy program manager.

The individuals that nominated her said Moriarty is a young superstar with unlimited potential and drive whose involvement is second to none. She is in her final year of the PALACE Acquire Intern program and her contributions at work are impressive. She executes the branch's $77,000 annual supply budget, and is accountable for 165 information technology items, guaranteeing essential computer connectivity for more than 50 military, civilian and contractor personnel.

As co-chair, Moriarty conducted a source selection past performance evaluation, supporting the D-RAPCON program. She researched four companies and more than 250 contracts worth billions of dollars, contributing key information to the $314 million contract decision.

As a steward of government funds, she led a cooperative research and development agreement for an aircraft multi-mode receiver. Her efforts ensured a successful ground and flight demonstration, increased the technology readiness level of the system and saved the government more than $400,000.

Continuously striving for more knowledge, Moriarty completed Squadron Officer School by correspondence in 50 percent of the allotted time and amassed 361 training hours at two other classes, culminating in her Level II PM certification.

She is also involved with the base and local community and never shies away from helping others. This year she founded the Hanscom Federal Credit Union Generation-Y advisory committee, recruited 23 members and provided feedback facilitating positive change within the community. Moriarty also volunteered 30 hours for Rocket Live Launch and Starbase science, technology, engineering and mathematics events, captivating 200 middle schoolers.

Additionally, she gave countless hours toward the division holiday planning committee, local soup kitchen, troop care drive, Civilian Health Promotion Services and many other programs for the betterment of others.

Moriarty was nominated by Eric Lekberg, branch chief, and Maj. Christopher Smith, deputy branch chief. They said she truly goes above and beyond, embracing the Air Force core value of service before self.
