Hanscom AFB, MA (January 24, 2019) – Senior Airmen from area military bases graduated from Hanscom Air Force Base’s Airman Leadership School (ALS) on December 21, 2018. Hanscom Federal Credit Union sponsored the graduation ceremony as it has done in the past.

The five-week ALS is the first professional military education that enlisted Air Force personnel encounter in their careers. The school prepares them for supervisory roles by strengthening their ability to lead, follow, and manage while helping them gain a broader understanding of their profession.

The John L. Levitow Award, the highest honor granted in the ALS, was given to SrA Selina Ortega of the 439th Aeromedical Staging Squadron, Westover Air Reserve Base, Massachusetts. This award goes to the student who achieves the highest overall standing from a combination of academic scores, performance evaluation, and leadership qualities.

“These young men and women have been trained to be leaders and are well prepared to make huge strides in their careers,” said Paul Marotta, Chairman of the Board of Hanscom FCU. “Hanscom FCU takes pride that we can play a small part in what I envision are long and successful careers serving our nation’s interests.”

The December class was comprised of five active duty Airmen, two members of the Air National Guard, three students from the Air Force Reserves, and two members of the U.S. Coast Guard.
