Top III honors August top performer

Tech. Sgt. John Walker, 50th Space Communications Squadron, has been awarded the Schriever Top III Council's Performer of the Month for August. Throughout the month, Walker provided iPhone support for multiple leadership members across Schriever Air Force Base. He guided them through a grueling 65-step/17-page process and helped establish new commanders in their new units and enabled them to sync their mobile devices with their email capabilities. During his initiative, he identified disparities with existing procedures and rewrote a combined process that became the benchmark for the base. Walker also devised and solidified 11 standard operating procedures and 25 task cards to meet leadership expectations for the communications focal point.  This heightened their capabilities with continuity and updated procedures to provide senior leadership better command and control and situational awareness.  Due to funding constraints, Walker, on his own accord, coordinated with another base/unit and procured 16 assets to expand and enhance three work center's capabilities and operations, saving the unit $4,800 in equipment costs. This enabled the unit and group control center and CFP to eliminate shared work space and provided 10 personnel ample work positions to work, at the same time, command and control mission operations for the 50th Network Operations Group and 50th Space Communications Squadron. Walker's efforts impacted a third work center with its relocation.  The additional equipment made the relocation complete, meeting leadership's intent of a one-stop shop for all client level services. In addition, he took the initiative and coordinated 561st Network Operating Squadron tours for 12 technicians to gain a better insight to higher level operations and bridge the gap between interagency relation and coordination. This led to expedite the closure of numerous tickets sitting at higher level support.  This enhances their C2 responsibilities to manage their unit's missio
