Spotlight: MSgt. Andre S. Davis

MSgt. Andre S. Davis, a unit education training manager with the Virginia Air National Guard’s 203rd RED HORSE Squadron at Camp Pendleton, Va., is one of the Air Force’s 12 Outstanding Airmen of the Year for 2013. His attention to detail and dedication to improving the performance of the Power Production Shop while serving as its supervisor led to his selection as unit education training manager in 2010. In that role, Davis established a new upgrade training process that significantly increased the number of upgrades; corrected computer and software problems that had negatively affected career development courses and professional military education exams; and identified training program issues, reducing discrepancies in Air Force training records. He also mentored dozens of junior enlisted members and acted as unit career advisor. He has associate degrees in mechanical and electrical technology, education and training management, and electrical engineering. Davis’ home of record is Newport News, Va. The Daily Report is shining the spotlight on each OAY in the days leading up to AFA’s Air & Space Conference that starts on Sept. 16 in National Harbor, Md. AFA will honor these airmen there.
