After 10 months of training, eight Redstone civilians are ready for their new roles as senior leaders.
They graduated May 19 from the Defense Acquisition University’s Senior Service College Fellowship program in a virtual ceremony.
The eight graduates from the Class of 2020 include Craig Bergquist of the Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space; Misty Glover of PEO Missiles and Space; John Holdcraft of PEO Aviation; Paul Lupo of the Aviation and Missile Command; Wade McCollin of PEO Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors; Jeannie Sommer of PEO Missiles and Space; Kadee Waterbury of Defense Acquisition University; and George Wiggs of the Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center.
As part of the fellowship program, Holdcraft and Sommer took additional classes to earn a master’s in management and leadership from Webster University which they received during the ceremony.
Mark Lumb, dean of DAU’s South Region and executive director of the fellowship program introduced the keynote speaker, Patrick Mason, the program executive officer for aviation.
The annual fellowship is open to GS-14/15 government civilians or nonfederal senior civilian acquisition professionals.
Defense Acquisition University provides the Senior Service College Fellowship program at four regional locations supporting Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland; Detroit Arsenal, Michigan; Redstone Arsenal; and Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey. In 14 years, the Huntsville SSCF Seminar has produced 130 graduates.
