Company Grade Officer Council established at 188th Wing Published June 6, 2015 By Capt. Holli Nelson 188th Wing Public Affairs EBBING AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Ark. -- As the 188th Wing transitions into its new intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance and remotely piloted aircraft mission, there has been an uptick in the amount of officers stationed here. As a result of this increase, and with a focus on giving back to the Airmen here, officers from across the wing gathered together to officially start the 188th Wing Company Grade Officers Council June 6, 2015. During the June Unit Training Assembly, the CGO council elected its president, vice president, secretary and treasurer, as well as selected individuals to lead committees including professional development, community service and socialization. Those elected to leadership positions include: President - Capt. Scott Anderson, 188th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group Vice President - 1st Lt. Kim Hunter, 288th Operations Support Squadron Secretary - 2nd Lt. Logan Huffman, 123rd Intelligence Squadron Treasurer - 2nd Lt. Samuel Harden, 123rd Intelligence Squadron "These people are the future leaders and officers in the wing," said Capt. Scott Anderson, Chief of Standards and Evaluations for the 188th ISRG and CGO council president. "The better we know each other and the better we work together, the more successful we'll be as a whole." The 188th Wing CGO council hopes to grow its membership over the following year and promote professional development, encourage base and local community service, and establish an environment to enhance camaraderie among company grade officers. "My hope is that this program will be successful and that we get more participation as we move forward and that each individual gets as much out of this experience as possible, whether that's growing as an officer or getting to know other people who might be struggling with something similar at work," said Anderson. "This is really all about building camaraderie and relationships across all parts of the wing."
