Members of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center Directorate of Personnel recently claimed Air Force District of Washington Directorate of Manpower, Personnel, and Services headquarters-level awards for 2015.

AFDW leadership recognized performers at the staff, operational, and installation levels in 12 categories.

“Each category was very competitive and the winners are to be commended for their outstanding contributions and continued commitment to excellence in serving Airmen and their families,” Nancy Zbyskinski, AFDW Manpower, Personnel and Services director.

The members of NASIC/DP who received AFDW Headquarters-level Manpower, Personnel, and Services recognition are:

*Darryl (Virgil) Scott who earned the Operational Level Technician of the Year Award
*1st Lt Christopher Hester who received the Operational Level CGO of the Year Award
* The Civilian Personnel Division which won the Civilian Personnel Program of the Year Award

“Individually or collectively these outstanding Director of Personnel representatives lived the DP mission to its fullest: being part of a motivated and trained personnel team focused on providing centralized personnel support for our most important resource … our people,” said Lon Molnar, NASIC DP director.

During 2015 Scott served as the NASIC Unit Reserve Coordinator and in that role was responsible for the care and feeding of all NASIC individual mobilization augmentees.

“He received numerous kudos for his above and beyond work the most recent example being taking care of an IMA who deployed down range,” Molnar said. “He was lauded by the local Reserve Integration Office as the best base URC at an annual intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance conference three years in a row.”

Hester has a history of excelling on the job, earning the directorate company grade officer of the year award in 2014 and 2015. During this latestaward period he led the military personnel program supporting 22 commanders, four groups and 18 squadrons; assisting more than 3,100 personnel. He also designed a new Military Personnel SharePoint Site which had more than 3,000 user hits in its first year.

“The Civilian Personnel Division provided outstanding customer support and mentorship to more than 1,500 employees at the Nation's premier Intelligence Center,” Molnar said. “Among the many programs they are responsible for they helped create and maintain an ‘affordability’ tool used in hiring and meeting mission goals within pay funding levels which ensured accountability for over 2,300 civilian and military positions and required grade levels.”

The AFDW-level award winners will move forward to compete at Air Force level.
