Congratulations on your selection to attend the Air Force’s premier Noncommissioned Officer Academy. Over the next several weeks, you will be given the opportunity to increase your knowledge base and enhance your communication and leadership skills. Ultimately, our goal is to expand your perspective of the military profession and to prepare you for positions of greater responsibility in the Air Force and Space Force.
The Sheppard NCOA team and I will do everything in our power to help you maximize your success. However, it will be your effort, dedication, and involvement that will make your time here at NCOA the most rewarding. I firmly believe you will get out of this experience what you put in to it.
I look forward to watching your continued growth into a future senior enlisted leader.
Senior Master Sgt. Latoria R. Ellis
