Staff Sgt. Ann Williams, 359th Training Squadron Detachment 1, military training flight, flight chief and native of Payson, Arizona, has been in the Air Force for 12 years and is the MTL of the Week at Sheppard Air Force base, Texas, for the week of May 31 – June 6, 2016.


Most significant accomplishments:  


“My most significant accomplishment has been leading Airmen,” said Williams. “To be able to shape and lead the future of the Air Force has been an amazing adventure. To have Airmen that are young and eager to learn, and watch them grow from new trainees to upcoming leaders has given me such pride in what I do.”


Airman’s story:  


“Growing up in a small town in Arizona, I decided I wanted to do more,” Williams said. “I joined the Air Force in 2003 and never looked back. My original AFSC (Air Force Specialty Code) is security forces, but I’m currently special duty as a military training leader. I look forward to taking the knowledge I’m learning as an MTL (Military Training Leader) back to my career field in a few short years.”


Supervisor’s comments:


“As an MTF Flight Chief, Staff Sergeant Williams led three MTL’s and 800 Airmen,” said Master Sgt. Melinda Wilborn, aircraft structural maintenance career development course writer. “During this time she managed 73 rooms and performed 584 wellness inspections. Staff Sergeant Williams identified 12 prohibited items and ensured the safety of 280 joint service personnel. She has also out-processed over 400 Airmen with a 100 percent on-time rate, saving the Air Force $7,000 in additional costs. Additionally, Staff Sergeant Williams coordinated with the Department of the Navy to secure an additional 46 rooms to support a student surge in fiscal year 2016. These additional rooms will support housing an added 100 students per year.
