"In addition to performing her normal duties, Sergeant Hilliard was hand-selected to be the Unit Fitness Manager, coordinating and tracking the fitness performance of 184 personnel with a 93 percent pass rate."

Sergeant Hilliard takes additional duties in stride, excelling in every area and setting her unit and fellow Airmen up for success.

"Sergeant Hilliard is also the flight safety representative," Chief Sands said. "She has conducted 12 briefings, four self inspections and kept 37 safety bulletins up to date with zero discrepancies within her flight."

Striving for excellence in all areas of her life, Sergeant Hilliard betters herself by pursuing educational opportunities in her spare time and taking an active interest in the local community.

"In her off-duty time, Sergeant Hilliard finds time to pursue her bachelor's degree in sports and health sciences through the American Military University," Chief Sands said. "She has completed 48 semester hours while maintaining a 3.2 GPA. She is also involved in the community and acts as a liaison for Dededo Soccer Clubs U-10 youth league, and is the point of contact for the club, coaches and parents."

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 with an award.
