As a spotlight performer, individuals are chosen by leadership for demonstrating one or more of the 22nd Air Refueling Wing commander's intents: Foster a culture of excellence ... Develop the next generation of leaders ... Set and achieve goals.

Airman 1st Class Dominick Finney, 22nd Comptroller Squadron customer service special actions processor, was chosen as the 22nd Air Refueling Wing spotlight performer for the week of Dec. 3 to 7, 2012.

Finney has been in the Air Force for more than two years and at McConnell for one year. The Lancaster, Pa., native enjoys playing basketball, video games and watching "The Walking Dead."

As the comptroller squadron spotlight performer, Finney was chosen because of his continued dedication to providing quality financial customer service to Airmen at McConnell.

Finney has served in several areas of Financial Management Flight including the customer service counter providing face-to-face customer service to more than 3,500 active duty members. He has also served as one of only two cashiers for the disbursing section of the comptroller squadron. Finally, he has been a primary point of contact for separations, retirements and other special actions, said 2nd Lt. Daniel Lekwa, 22nd CPTS Financial Services Flight commander.

Finney also dedicates personal time to remain involved with squadron and base-wide events.

"He can always be found actively participating in squadron sporting events as a leader on the field or on the court," said Lekwa.
