ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL, Ill. -- Army Contracting Command Executive Director Carol Lowman and Command Sgt. Maj. John Murray visited ACC-Rock Island March 15 to meet with ACC-RI leaders on a variety of topics, tour the facilities and host a town hall with approximately 500 attendees.
During the town hall, Lowman presented 15 employees with senior executive service coins and two prestigious awards.
Gregory Moore, Kuwait/Qatar branch chief in the Reachback Division received the Superior Civilian Service Award for his leadership in contracting support to Southwest Asia, and for filling in as the director of contracting for the Office of Program Management Saudi Arabia National Guard.
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Michael D. Stallsmith, a member of ACC-RI's Non-Complex Reachback Branch, was presented with the USAF Senior Airman Below the Zone promotion.
According to Maj. Lee Dent, chief of the Non-Complex Reachback branch, "This is a very distinctive honor as Airman 1st Class Stallsmith will be promoted to senior airman six months early."
Lowman spoke about the successes and challenges Army contracting has encountered since the Gansler Report was published.
She also shared some thoughts on ACC's future while encouraging employees to actively work on improving their writing, abstract thinking and multi-tasking skills in order to become even more valuable as contracting professionals.
