NDTA PRESIDENT'S SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD - 2009

Ken with NDTA President's Special Achievement Award
Ken Wavering has provided outstanding leadership of the Scott-St. Louis Chapter of NDTA for the past four years and was the catalyst for unparalleled member participation, exceptional educational programs, an active program supporting disaster preparation, philanthropic and scholarship fundraising, and coordination with other professional organizations to sponsor two significant regional forums, addressing logistics and supply chain issues.
The scholarship program has raised and awarded between $12,000 and $15,000 each year.
The chapter raised $10,000 for the Fisher House Project at the St. Louis VA hospital and designed, created, and funded the "Bistro" recreation room for the Scott AFB Aeromedical Staging Facility, where injured Service members returnning from an overseas deployment can relax while in transit to other medical facilities.
Working with the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Associate [AFCEA], Ken was key to organizing and sponsoring "Technet Mid-America" for two years running. This forum attracted 800 attendees this year.
Ken Wavering has been an inspirational leader to the Chapter, achieving strong support for USTRANSCOM and the DOD, and his is a great credit to the NDTA.
