ALTUS AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. (AFNS) --

Tech. Sgt. Stacie Hamilton, 97th Medical Group, pharmacy flight chief won the annual Leadership Pinnacle Senior Technician of the Year Award, May 2019, at Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma.

The purpose of the award is to recognize the most outstanding senior pharmacy technician throughout the Air Force each year. The award encompasses leadership, training and career development throughout the career field. Hamilton proved to excel in these categories helping her earn the title of the best in the Air Force.

“The continual process improvements we’ve made at the pharmacy over the last year has helped tremendously,” Hamilton said. “We had constant advancements and upgrades to the facility, which bring us forward and help us focus on patient health and safety.”

The Annual Leadership Pinnacle Senior Technician of the Year Award is a very competitive award. One of the many requirements for application is a minimum of 15 years time-in-service within the pharmaceutical career field. This factor alone put Hamilton up against Master and Senior Master Sgt.’s throughout the Air Force.

Hamilton was notified she had won the award in May of 2019, but will not actually receive the award until the Pharmacy Convention held at the end of October.

“I was really excited when I found out I had won,” Hamilton said. “I really thought that the work I do here, day-to-day, is just my usual work. It is really nice to know that somebody somewhere, or a team somewhere, is recognizing that we do work really hard every day.”

Hamilton and the Airmen of the 97th MDG pharmacy strive for excellence in patient care. From labeling prescriptions to counting patient medication, every job is essential and all efforts put into the job do not go unnoticed.

This award, along with many others keep proving that the Airmen at Altus AFB excel in all they do and are constantly mission ready.
