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

Senior Airman LuAnn Yang, 22nd Medical Operations Squadron aerospace medical technician, was selected as the 22nd Air Refueling Wing spotlight performer for the week Aug. 6 to 10, 2012.

Yang has met all of the 22nd ARW commander's intents.

As an aerospace medical technician, Yang checks-in patients and measures their vital signs, including heart rate and blood pressure, while going over patient medical history for any problems and preparing their concerns for the physician.

Yang is known in her squadron for being enthusiastic in her duties and treating her patients with passion.

"Airman Yang has mastered the skills of an aerospace medical technician and has applied her skills in two of the busiest duty sections of the medical group," said Lt. Col. Francis Schlosser, 22nd MDOS commander. "She is an outstanding Airman and there is no doubt she will be a phenomenal NCO."

Yang has been in the Air Force since 2009 and has been stationed at McConnell for two years. In her spare time, the Minneapolis, Minn., native enjoys playing guitar and piano, traveling, and being outdoors.

Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My parents are the most influential people in my life as they were immigrants and knew little-to-no English when they arrived in America. They worked hard for what they have today and pushed themselves to further their education. They both attended college and my father graduated a few years ago with his master's degree.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force Career?
I would like to grow into a better person, obtain my Community College of the Air Force degree, and make the best of my career.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
The most interesting place I have traveled is New York City. I enjoyed the diversity.

What is your favorite book/movie and why?
"The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" is my favorite book. It serves as a reminder to grow and learn more about myself and the people I will come to meet.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would have loved to meet Mother Theresa. She had a great and very giving heart.
