1st Lt. Cassandra Dunn, 315th Training Squadron student, is the Goodfellow Student of the Month Spotlight for May, a series highlighting exceptional Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines.

17th Training Wing Public Affairs: What led you to join the military?

Dunn: My 4th grade teacher was prior enlisted Army and he was a really big influence in my life. I was in fourth grade when 9/11 happened, so that kind of set the ball rolling.

What has been the most impactful moment in your career so far?

When I found out I was re-classed into intel. I was a pilot originally, I didn’t make it. When I found out I was going into intel it was a really big moment for me, that I actually got to stay in the Air Force.

What are your hobbies?

I work in the shelter a lot, Concho Valley PAWS. My husband and I like to do a lot of outdoor stuff, hiking and camping and all that. We like to go to Big Bend whenever we get the chance.

What do you want to accomplish during your time here at Goodfellow Air Force Base?

I want to get the technical knowledge under control, so that when I get to my base I can be a good leader.

Is there any advice or anything extra you would like to share?

Work hard. Usually things work out if you work hard.
