Tech. Sgt. Curtis Nissen, 36th Contingency Response Group quality assurance evaluator, was awarded Andersen's Best, here Nov. 17.

As a quality assurance evaluator, Sergeant Nissen is responsible for training and evaluating eight work center quality assurance representatives. He serves as the squadron focal point for self sufficiency, corrosion control and electrostatic discharge programs.

"Tech. Sgt. Nissen has been the glue holding the QA work center together," said Master Sgt. Jay Bartholomew, 36 CRG maintenance supervisor. "Over the last year, the work center has seen an 85 percent manning turn around. For four months of that time, he was the only evaluator working in QA. He has taken the lead in ensuring completion of 28,552 equipment inspection tasks every 18 months."

Sergeant Nissen is an essential part of the squadron, managing squadron evaluation program, scheduling and conducting personnel and equipment evaluations to validate training and maintenance program standards.

For his outstanding performance, dedication, commitment to excellence and actions above and beyond expectations, the CRG and wing leadership dub him Andersen's Best.

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.
