Airmen honored during CCAF graduation ceremony

By

Joint Base Charleston held its semi-annual Community College of the Air Force graduation ceremony May 22, 2013, at the JB Charleston - Air Base Theater. One hundred ten graduates were honored. The graduation was highlighted by retired Chief Master Sgt. James Roy, who was the guest speaker. According to Darrell Nesbitt, Joint Base Charleston Air Force Education and Training Chief, In the Air Force, education serves to promote the interrelated goals of self-development, citizenship and career advancement.

"After 20-plus years, CCAF is still fulfilling the mission of enhancing AF readiness by improving the technological, managerial and leadership skills of the enlisted force", said Nesbitt. At JB Charleston, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Park University, Southern Illinois University and Webster University offer follow-on programs, which are progressively more challenging and rewarding to the students.


Note: Due to TDY, PCS and retirements, all of the graduates were not able to attend the ceremony.
