As a spotlight performer, individuals are chosen by leadership for demonstrating the Air Force's Core Values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.

Airman Briana Hampton, 22nd Medical Support Squadron medical records technician, received the spotlight performer for the week of Aug. 29- Sept. 2.

Hampton coordinates release of information functions, prepares, files, safe-guards, transfers and retires health records. She also acts as the flight safety monitor for 28 personnel.

“Airman Hampton embodies Service Before Self,” said Tech. Sgt. Latasha Compton, 22nd MDSS NCO in-charge. “Upon notification for another country national tasking, she cancelled a cruise to make sure she was able to complete all of her training prior to her upcoming deployment.”

Hampton, an Arlington, Texas, native, joined the Air Force in October 2015 and arrived at McConnell in January 2016. Her hobbies include watching movies, eating and playing softball.

I think the most interesting place I’ve been to is Tokyo, Japan, because there is so much to do and see and the people are extremely friendly, which is amazing.

If you had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?

If I had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world it would be Tia Torres. I am a huge animal lover and I relate to her in that aspect. I think it’s awesome what she does for the community and the animals that she saves.
