On Oct. 6, more than 120 people attended an awards ceremony for the 2019 and 2020 NA-50 Excellence Awards, hosted virtually by NNSS to best adhere to COVID protocols. The NA-50 Excellence Awards are presented by the NNSA Office of Safety, Infrastructure & Operations (NA-50) for outstanding accomplishments involving innovation, effectiveness, teamwork, overcoming adversity and enabling future success.
Joel Leeman, Mission Support and Test Services (MSTS) Director for Enterprise Infrastructure Programs, facilitated the ceremony. Opening remarks were provided by Ken Sheely, NA-50 Acting Principal Deputy Associate Administrator. Nevada Field Office (NFO) Manager Dr. David Bowman and MSTS President Mark Martinez distributed the awards themselves, which were accepted by a team lead or a team representative. The lead or representative also provided a summary of the activity and thanked team members, NFO and NA-50 for all of their support.
“To earn these awards] takes something special and unique, overcoming challenges and doing something that’s never been done before,” said Ken Sheely during the award presentation. “What you guys are doing each and every day is important to this country.”
Congratulations to all our winning teams!
