Luke Air Force Base recruiters were recognized with multiple awards during this year’s Air Force Reserve Command recruiting conference in Orlando, Florida in October.

Tech. Sgt. Chasity Hercher and Master Sgt. Marsi Smith, 944th Fighter Wing Recruiting Services, both earned the Century Club award while Master Sgt. Chandra Callahan earned the Superior Achievement award.

“Both awards are based on assigned recruiting numbers,” said Senior Master Sgt. Jeffrey Ossman, 944 FW/RS flight chief. “The Century Club award is given to recruiters who meet 150 percent of their goal, while Superior Achievement recognizes recruiters who meet 130 percent of their goal.”

The RS office was also recognized with the All Wheel Drive (Silver Level), Top Large Flight (Silver Level) and Top ART Flight awards for AFRC.

“Meeting our goals takes dedication and hard work,” said Hercher. “We couldn’t have done this without the support of the wing, and everybody in our office working as a team and maintaining the same work pace throughout the fiscal year.”

Ossman said he’s proud of his team’s achievements, but says earning awards is not the goal in the RS office.

“It’s not all production, it’s also about finding the right fit for the career field,” he said.
