Air Force announces food excellence awards

Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas (AFNS) -- The Air Force recently announced the 2018 Arthur J. Myers Food Service Excellence Awards.

Senior Airman Joya Lindsey of Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, is the Region 1 winner, and Airman 1st Class Michelle Torculas of Altus AFB, Oklahoma, is the Region 2 winner.

The award, managed by the Air Force Services Activity and named after one of the most influential members of the services career field, honors junior enlisted Airmen for their excellence and achievements in food service.

“I’m proud of the dedication these outstanding Airmen display in ensuring our mission succeeds,” said Col. Donna Turner, commander of AFSVA.

As Myer award winners, the Airmen will receive a week of formal training Nov. 10-17, at the Culinary Institute of America’s Greystone campus at St. Helena, California.

“Having an opportunity to train and network with the food service industry’s elite is an honor,” said Jim Krueger, chief Air Force Food and Beverage, Policy, Procedures and Strategic Initiatives at AFSVA. “They are learning from the best of the best and should be very proud of their accomplishments.”

Airmen are nominated by their local leadership based on duty performance and dedication to their craft, base and community involvement, leadership abilities, perceived ability to take what was learned and share with their peers, professionalism and attitude.

Region 1 represents U.S. East Coast and Europe installations and region 2 represents the West Coast and Pacific Command Installations.

This award highlights Myers’ experience and contributions to the Air Force Services community and the Department of Defense's Morale, Welfare and Recreation tiers.
