OGDEN, Utah – Team Hill welcomed its newest senior noncommissioned officers into the highest enlisted tier during a ceremony at the Eccles Center here, Aug. 18.

The evening event included dinner and certificate presentations. The guest speaker was Airman 1st Class Terrance Wilburn, a combat munitions training instructor assigned to the 649th Munitions Squadron, who provided perspective on behalf of all junior Airmen.

“Throughout your careers you have had different experiences, tests, and trials that have shaped you into the persons you are today,” said Wilburn. “You have learned how to take those challenges and experiences and turn them into learning and building opportunities.”

Wilburn asked the inductees to remember the things that got them where they are now, and to lead and mold the junior enlisted corps who will one day take their places.

“I take every chance I get to observe and model myself after those above me in rank and experience,” he said. “I believe that most Airmen feel the same way. We strive for strong leaders and role models, and count on the generation before us to lead us to success.”

Through humility and servant leadership, Wilburn challenged the inductees to make an already strong Air Force even better.

“I hope to see men and women that are eager to plant knowledge and offer guidance to [junior-ranking] Airmen, empowering us to perform tasks at the highest level and achieve the excellence that is expected of us,” he said.
