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 Kyle Trapp, 22nd Logistics Readiness Squadron cargo movement journeyman, was selected as the 22nd Air Refueling Wing Spotlight performer for the week of June 25 to June 29, 2012. Trapp achieved the commander's intent of developing the next generation of leaders.

As an outbound cargo movement technician, Trapp receives, preserves and packages DoD assets for commercial transportation supporting the wing's 63 KC-135 Stratotankers. He processes due-out release aircraft parts, shipment receipts and turn-ins for organizational supply accounts.

Trapp joined the Air Force in April 2008. He has been stationed at McConnell since September 2008. When he's not on duty, Trapp spends his free time working on cars, riding motorcycles and racing.
