MCCONNELL AIR FORCE BASE, Kan. -- 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.
Matt Mohon, 22nd Contracting Squadron procurement technician, was named the spotlight performer for the 22nd Air Refueling Wing for the week of March 26 to 30, 2012. Mohon has been a civilian employee at McConnell for one year. Prior to becoming a procurement technician, he was an active duty crew chief for four years with the 22nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. The Houston, Texas, native enjoys exercising, reading and volunteering.
Mohon has demonstrated all three intents through various actions at the 22nd CONS to include gaining the best understanding of assigned tasks by asking thorough questions, sharing knowledge with squadron personnel to ensure maximum retention, and progressing through a Master's of Business Administration.
"Matt provides consistent, quality customer service," said Maj. Amy Harshner, 22nd CONS commander.
