Columbia Public Affairs Specialist Wins Top TRADDOC Honors

Today, Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) announced the winners of the 2012 Keith L. Ware (KLW) competition.  

We are so happy to recongize one of our teammates in public affairs office here in Columbia Recruiting Battalion.

Vernetta Garcia won 1st place in Human Interest Feature Article Category. Her story was from Aug 1, 2012, with the title: From Recruiting to the White House.

First place finishers’ products will be forwarded to Department of the Army for competition at the DA level KLW award.

This year, TRADOC had over 60 entries judged by three distinguished private citizens. One is a recognized retired public affairs officer, the other an award-winning regional/national journalist, and finally an established author and university English/Communications professor (PhD). The experience the judges provided us across their three backgrounds and disciplines was invaluable in ensuring a fair and credible result.

The MG Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Awards Communication Competition recognizes Soldiers and Department of the Army civilian employees for excellence in furthering the objectives of the Department of the Army Public Affairs program. The Secretary of the Army sponsors this competition annually. The Office of the Chief of Public Affairs conducts judging with a goal of ensuring the best internal information efforts receive recognition for professional excellence and outstanding achievement.
