Employee of the Quarter – JS J7 Technical Support Team Names Takeya Miller

Each quarter, Knight Federal’s Employee of the Quarter (EOQ) award for the Suffolk, VA location recognizes the outstanding qualities and contributions of employees towards Knight Federal’s goals and mission. Knight Federal recognizes that driven and loyal employees empower an organization.  This fourth quarter the award recipient covers April-June – 2020 is Takeya Miller.

Takeya is one of four individuals that will receive the award each year. The honor is awarded the beginning of April, July, October and December during the Christmas party for an outstanding employee from the three preceding months.

EOQ 2020 Winner:

April – June – Takeya Miller

Takeya has proven to be one of our most reliable Modeling and Simulation operators.  She shows up to work early with a drive that is ready to go as soon as she steps into the building…even without coffee!  She has helped our leading Joint Theater Level Simulation (JTLS) techs to decipher multiple issues with JTLS during exercise times and has helped other techs to understand the quirks in the JTLS model. 

Onboard less than a year, she has quickly mastered the JTLS simulation and is well on her way to mastering our other simulations.  A team player, she has a way to make everyone around her smile; be it with her calm demeanor or infectious laughter.  No other tech has stepped up to learn the ins and outs of the Air Tasking Order (ATO) translation as well as she has. Her continued superior performance has made Takeya’s selection as this quarter’s employee of the quarter a foregone conclusion. 

The Employee of the Quarter will receive:

  • A gift card for $50
  • A framed certificate recognizing their accomplishments
  • A Knight Federal imprinted leather notebook
