Airman receives awards

A Louisburg native has been recognized for her service. Air Force Airman 1st Class Leilani M. Strickland has been named the 2nd Maintenance Squadron's Highlighted Airman.

Selection was based on the Strickland's exemplary duty performance, job knowledge, leadership qualities, teamwork ethic, personal achievements and record of supporting and serving the community.

Strickland filled in as shift lead during a noncommissioned officer shortage for a month. Furthermore, she fueled the 2nd Maintenance Group's "on-aircraft" welding initiative by leading 22 engine post-weld inspections. Her efforts helped save $9 million and 578 maintenance hours annually.

She also led a back-to-school fundraiser event to help build stronger local community relations with the military. She raised more than $700 to help provide basic school supplies for 200 students.

Strickland is currently serving as a nondestructive inspection journeyman with 2nd Maintenance Squadron, Barksdale Air Force Base, La.

She has served in the military for two years.

Strickland is the daughter of Noelia Plascencia of Louisburg and is a 2019 graduate of Louisburg High School.
