During the past six weeks, members of Airman Leadership School class 14-3 were immersed in training to become successful supervisors and leaders of Airmen.

ALS is the first of three enlisted professional military education courses designed to teach future supervisors what it takes to be an NCO.

The students were educated on various topics to include interpersonal communications, tactical and strategic strategies, current events, and how to write a variety of products that include: enlisted performance reports, awards packages and letters of reprimand.

Class 14-3 not only learned how to lead and perform at the next pay grade, they also took time to serve the community and deployed members from a sister service.

During their time at ALS, class 14-3 volunteered 152 hours and made a $200 donation to the Women's History Month committee, and created a trivia challenge from the base heritage display competition. 

In addition to playing a critical role in the historical celebration the students also boosted the morale of U.S. Army 5-7 Air Defense Artillery Soldiers deployed to Gaziantep, Turkey, by donating 360 donuts.

The class also left a permanent mark by painting the ALS schoolhouse and professional development center during one of the 39th Air Base Wing's "Surety Saturdays."
