SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
There is always the age old questions of who watches the watchmen? Who guards the guardians? Who maintains the maintainers? Can't say much for the first two questions, but for the last one we can finally answer proudly that they will be taken care of by a highly qualified, excellent in all she does, 110 percent giving, Airman who ACEd her technical training in the maintenance management production course.
Airman 1st Class Dana High received the ACE Award after getting 100 percent scores on all six block tests of her training.

Most memorable Air Force experience: First night arriving at boot camp and getting screamed at, thinking what did I do. I was thinking I have a good job, great family and friends, but after all of that, it was the best choice I have ever made.
How do you make responsible choices: I’m a rule follower by nature. When it comes to choices, I like to weigh the pros and cons and what the outcome could be whether positive or negative. I make the choice that’s best for me or the good of the group.

Instructor Comment: A1C High has been nothing but a pleasure to instruct during her 6 weeks here. She was always willing to reach out to the other airmen who might have been struggling, and help them understand the maintenance concepts that we are trying to teach them. I think the significance in her winning this award just speaks to her as a person. She always took any type of feedback we gave and ran with it, and ensured others followed suit. I see her graduating here and doing big things for the Air Force, and possibly a commission in her future.
