12 Outstanding Airmen of the Year

The 12 Outstanding Airmen of the Year are representatives of each Major Command who have been selected as the Airmen who exemplify superior leadership, job performance and personal achievements. They are coming to the Academy to interact with cadets to provide mentorship, leadership advice, and exposure to Enlisted personnel and different Air Force Specialty Codes. This serves as one of the National Character and Leadership Symposium events that occur throughout the year, where this year, cadets will explore the theme of “Leadership and Teamwork.”
