A staff sergeant from the 22nd Maintenance Squadron was awarded a commander' s coin for his outstanding performance as a supervisor.

The coin was passed from Col. Joel Jackson, 22nd Air Refueling Wing commander, to Staff Sgt. Tiron Jarrett, 22nd MXS electrical and environmental systems craftsman, for his standout performance.

"It feels good. It makes me feel like what I do matters," said Jarrett. "Hopefully I'm giving these guys a good example."

Jarrett has gone above and beyond for the Airmen under his supervision.

"Staff Sgt. Jarrett directly applies the Air Force core values as well as a sense of compassion and empathy with the Airmen he supervises," said Maj. Dale Williquette, 22nd Maintenance Squadron commander. "Sergeant Jarrett's unparalleled devotion was also evident as he mentored one of his airmen through the process of purchasing his first automobile and provided transportation to the showroom."

As a husband and father of two girls, Jarrett applies some of the supervisory skills he learned from his job to his home life, and applies the compassion he has for his girls towards his Airman.

"Having kids does make being a supervisor easier, being more cognitive of helping and having more patience." said Jarrett.

Jarrett because of his unique leadership skills and character, has made a positive influence with his peers in his squadron.

"There are few supervisors who display the same intense dedication to mentor Airmen, both on and off duty, the way Staff Sgt. Jarrett does," says Williquette. "I believe his impact on the growth and development of his subordinates will be felt for generations to come."
