Success with teamwork

Members of the 344th Recruiting Squadron teamed up with Airmen from Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, to support the STEM Diversity Career Expo in Dallas, March 19. Pictured at the event are, from left: Tech. Sgt. Braulio Jimenez, 344th RCS A-Flight; Capt. Nicki Borgstrom, 82nd Training Wing; Capt. Deanna Franzen, 344th RCS Support Flight commander; and Staff Sgt. Joshua Mash, 364th Training Squadron. The team set a one-day record with 19 qualified STEM officer leads and nine enlisted leads. Approximately 75 percent of the 400-plus attendees were in the target demographic – 18- to 39-year-olds interested in STEM opportunities. “Having Captain Borgstom there to give real life experience on what life as a Civil Engineering officer is like and to explain what people with different types of engineering degrees might be asked to do in the Air Force was invaluable,” Franzen said. “Further, Staff Sergeant Mash gave current testimony on what technical training in the Air Force is like and offered excellent insight into enlisted career fields that use the same engineering principles as officers. I am grateful for the proactive support that Sheppard AFB has provided us." (U.S. Air Force photo)
