GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
Cory Lelek, 17th Comptroller Squadron non-appropriated funds financial analyst, was recently recognized by Air Education and Training Command as the Financial Management Civilian of the Quarter - Level II for the second quarter of 2006 (April - June).
"Winning the award was an honor considering the caliber of people in the financial management community," said the financial analyst from Snyder, Texas.
The award recognizes the outstanding achievements and accomplishments of a financial manager's job performance, including contributions to mission effectiveness, leadership and mentorship in the workplace and professional and career development
and improvement. To a lesser degree, nominations also emphasize contributions, participation and activities outside of job duties.
This isn't the first time Mr. Lelek has won an AETC level award. In 2004 he was recognized as AETC/FM Civilian of the Quarter - Category I, first quarter (January - March). Since 2004, Mr. Lelek has won other notable awards and recognitions such as the Exemplary Civilian Service Medal (March 2005) and the 2nd Air Force Civilian of the Quarter - Entry Level (January - March 2004).
Mr. Lelek's other awards include 17th Training Wing Staff Civilian of the Quarter - GS-07 through GS-09 (January - March 2006 and April-June 2006), 17 TRW Staff Civilian of
the Year for 2004, 17 CPTS Civilian of the Year for 2004, and 17 TRW Civilian of the Quarter (January - March 2004).
Mr. Lelek's numerous awards have left him with a deep sense of pride for his job, but perhaps an even deeper pride is that which he has in being a member of the financial management team of the 17 CPTS, a pride perhaps best expressed in the following
words by Mr. Lelek: "As the Air Force continues its transformation efforts, many
financial challenges arise that require the hard work by dedicated professionals. I'm fortunate to be part of the outstanding financial management team here at Goodfellow and any recognition I receive is really a testament to their excellence."
