Mentoring program participants talk with Maj. Gen. Jim Myles during the People Empowering People award ceremony Oct. 20.

AMCOM commander Maj. Gen. Jim Myles talked informally with the latest participants in the command's mentoring program.

Myles asked each protege what he or she had gotten out of the six-month program and also conversed with their mentors.

He awarded certificates to all the participants in this ninth cycle of the People Empowering People mentoring program during the award ceremony Oct. 20.

"This program is set up so well to allow you to interface with our leaders. We've got some great leaders here," Myles said.

The Aviation and Missile Command's latest cycle of the program, conducted by AMCOM G-1 (Human Resources), began April 20.

Earl Montgomery, a security manager at AMCOM G-2 (Intelligence and Security), was the protege to Bill Walton, a team leader at Test Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment Activity.

"It's an excellent program, very worthwhile," Montgomery said. "I highly recommend it to others.

"The biggest thing I got from Bill, my mentor, was giving back. That's one of the things he really stressed in our relationship, was giving back to the community."

Bernadette Green, a logistics management specialist in the Program Executive Office for Aviation, was the protege to AMCOM deputy commander Ronnie Chronister.

"It was wonderful," Green said. "It was really good insight. I learned a lot and I was exposed to a lot of things. So I really enjoyed it."
Proteges included Montgomery, Green, Nakia Redmon, Todd Ivey, Kevin Norris, Mark Carlson, Norma Jones, Tiffani Paige and Jillion Gantt.

Mentors included Walton, Chronister, Brig. Gen. Genaro Dellarocco, Rick Turner, Lori Reynolds, Steve Rainsford, Ray Barnes, Susan Christiansen and Rick Irvin.
