Staff Sgt. Joby Mathews, 36th Mobility Response Squadron engineering specialist, was awarded Team Andersen's Best here, Jan. 26.

Sergeant Mathews is a remarkable Airman whose expertise has an impact on worldwide humanitarian relief efforts launched from Andersen.

"Since arriving at the 36 MRS last year, Sergeant Mathews' unparalleled work ethic, never-ending search for increased knowledge and responsibility and broad range of experience from past deployments and missions has provided the squadron with an invaluable asset," said Tech. Sgt. Gary Schoenhals Jr., noncommissioned officer in charge of airfield assessments. "We are extremely proud to have the privilege of having Sergeant Mathews as a member of the 36th Contingency Response Group and the engineering specialist career field."

Following Sergeant Mathews' runway pavement evaluation at an undisclosed location, the airfield's capability to sustain airflow missions in support of humanitarian assistance and disaster response operations was successfully certified, increasing safety and security in the region.

Also, Sergeant Mathews has led an impeccable Safety Program for the 36 MRS. His program has paid enormous dividends in guaranteeing safety during drop/landing zone operations.

Andersen's Best is a recognition program which highlights a top performer from the 36th Wing. Each week, supervisors nominate a member of their team for outstanding performance and the wing commander presents the selected Airman/Civilian with an award.
