Schriever’s Satellite Flyer Online editor was recently named the Staff Sgt. Christopher J. Frost Outstanding Communication NCO winner for 2008.

Staff Sgt. Amanda Delisle, 50th Space Wing Public Affairs, received the Air Force Space Command Public Affairs Communication Excellence Award for superior teamwork, followership and job performance.

“I am honored that my work throughout the past year was acknowledged,” Sergeant Delisle said. “Public Affairs is a small career field. We all work very hard to communicate with our key audiences and gain public trust and support for our mission. We are a team and a piece of this award belongs to us all.”

Sergeant Delisle attributes her accomplishments to her co-workers at Schriever and at the International Security Assistance Force in Kabul, Afghanistan, where she was deployed from December 2007 to June 2008.

“This award not only highlights my achievements, but also those of my coworkers. When one of us receives an award, we all win. We are a team and nothing is done without the help of others,” Sergeant Delisle said.

During Sergeant Delisle’s deployment, she served in the Headquarters Public Affairs office for more than 50,000 ISAF troops from more than 50 nations. Her primary responsibility was releasing information to more than 50 local and 200 international media outlets.

At home station, Sergeant Delisle manages the base public Web site and oversees production of the base newspaper with an audience of more than 6,000.

“Sergeant Delisle absolutely deserves this award. Her day to day dedication to the job is unmatched and the accomplishments during her deployment were exceptional,” said Master Sgt. Martie Moore, 50th SW PA superintendent.

Sergeant Delisle will now compete at the Air Force level.
