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.

Senior Airman Bryan Krick, 22nd Communications Squadron network infrastructure technician, received the spotlight performer for the week of Sept. 19-23.

Krick maintains, configures and troubleshoots a $1.8 million local-area network for more than 350 secure communications customers. He schedules and coordinates authorized service interruptions to facilitate Department of Defense upgrade requirements, and also maintains $750,000 long-haul connection equipment that sustains critical network access to all three wings at McConnell Air Force Base.

“Krick is an outstanding technician and an up-and-coming leader in today’s Air Force,” said Chief Master Sergeant William Barnett, 22nd CS superintendent. “I am proud to have him on our team.”

Krick, a Belle Plaine, Minnesota, native, joined the Air Force in July 2013 and arrived at McConnell in April 2014. His hobbies include hanging out with friends, video games and reading books.

Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?

The most positive influence in my life is my father. He has not only always taught me the right thing to do, but I also acquired my work ethic from him.

If you could give advice to a new Airman, what would it be and why?

If I could give advice to a new Airman, I would say work hard, but have fun doing it. If you enjoy your job, it’s not really work.

What is one goal that you have already accomplished, or would like to accomplish, during your Air Force career?

I don’t really set goals. Every day I strive to be the best version of myself and wherever I end up, I end up.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?

I think the most interesting place I’ve been to is South Korea. It’s the only time I have left the country, and the difference in culture was interesting to me.

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

I would meet like to meet Anna Kendrick. I think she is hilarious and easy on the eyes.
