Shameca 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 2019 Winner:

October – December – Shameca Williams

Shameca Williams

Shameca worked computer and printer setup for three major events, ensuring the floor plans were accurate and equipment was ready. Simultaneously she was working daily trouble calls for the JTEN-S and JTEN-U networks, and working to provide remediation for the workstations on both networks identified by IA’s ACAS as having outdated software, vulnerabilities, and older OS versions.  Workstation remediation sometimes takes hours, or days, and even full computer replacement at times.  She worked thru it all successfully.   She always had a smile on her face, and a positive attitude. 

As if this was not enough to tackle, Shameca also assisted in the move of the TB 22 and 24 occupants to their new spaces in TB 19.   She assisted with data file moves, and physical workstation moves and reconnections for some.  She has a very pleasant demeanor that is a great asset when interacting with the customer and coworkers.   Shameca is a very behind-the scenes kind of person.   She is so quiet you don’t even know she is in the room, but her work is very important and much appreciated in support of this contract.   Shameca is a true team player.  Her exceptional performance during this period is in keeping with the highest standards of the Joint Staff as a whole and is a credit to Knight Federal Solutions and the Joint Staff J7 Tech Support Team.

The Employee of the Quarter will receive:

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