The U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command's headquarters selected the Civilian of the Year and Most Valuable Player of the Year during a ceremony, April 9, in the command auditorium, on Fort Huachuca, Ariz.

Selected as the command headquarters 2018 Civilian of the Year was Anna Stompro, the Budget Execution Division Chief in the G-8 directorate. Stompro, a Sierra Vista native, began her government career as a summer hire at the Joint Interoperability Test Command before taking a budget analysis job for NETCOM and eventually worked her way to her current position in the G-8. It was through Stompro's meticulous efforts in preparing, submitting, and defending the command's Program Objective Memorandum requirements that she earned the selection as NETCOM's 2018 Civilian of the Year. Stompro was the NETCOM Civilian of the Month for August, 2018.

Selected as the command headquarters 2018 Most Valuable Player was Roy San Pedro, an intelligence specialist for the NETCOM G-2 Intelligence Directorate. San Pedro, who began his government civilian career in 2010 with the Fort Huachuca Intelligence Center of Excellence, has taken what he learned through the intelligence schoolhouse and applied it to his current position in NETCOM where his constant attention to detail has ensured the NETCOM Intelligence Directorate is able to provide first-class intel products to the rest of the command. San Pedro was the command's MVP of the Quarter for the fourth quarter, 2018.

The command has two categories for Civilians to earn recognition. Government civilians in the grade of GS12 and higher (most of our civilian employees are in this category) can compete for Civilian of the Year, while those competing for MVP of the Year are GS11 and below.

"The challenges we have faced in recent years have been met and conquered through not only the courage and determination of our Soldiers, but also by the dedication and professionalism of our Civilian workforce," said NETCOM Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Maria Barrett.

"The mission of operating, maintaining and defending our Global Network Enterprise is no easy task, but each one of our Civilian nominees has made great contributions to the successful accomplishment of NETCOM's mission," Barrett said. "Those who will be recognized today are some of the best we have at what they do. They represent the best within their organizations."

Once the winners were selected, a complement of awards and incentives were provided by the NETCOM CG and Sally Gann, the command's senior civilian and deputy G4, logistics. Each nominee received an award medal and a cash award. That was followed by the 2018 winners, who received even more coveted prizes, to include a reserved parking spot for the year.

"Civilians in NETCOM have provided the skills that are crucial to the support of our global military operations, and provide a full complement to the military's occupational specialties throughout the command," said Gann during her remarks.

In closing, Gann emphasized the need to continue the tradition of recognizing the outstanding civilian members of the command. "Please continue to nominate the best of the best, as we continue the Army Civilian role to be the 'stability and continuity' for our Army."
