Good Afternoon BLC Class 10-20! You all have done an amazing job adapting to the eBLC-Blended! We are so proud of your engagements with the facilitators on MS Teams and the professionalism you showed when you arrived for all evaluations. Last week you conducted PRT, CIT, and Public Speaking evaluations around the NCOA. You have set the bar high for future students. Never forget where you can refer back to, should you need leadership advice. Great work!

First Sergeant’s Duties and responsibilities date back to the Civial War. Military Leaders have viewed the 1SG as the key to development of a good company. They are the provider, the disciplinarian, the wise counselor, the versatile speaker, the confident sounding board, and above all, the company’s FIRST SOLDIER! The III Corps and Fort Hood NCOA conducted the change of Responsibility this morning between 1SG Sherwood and 1SG Burton. Congratulations to 1SG Sherwood as she moves on to the Sergeant Major Academy and welcome to the team 1SG Burton!

Despite the COVID-19 limitations, our team has proven the ability to adapt and overcome! Our QAO and TCO team, SFC Williams and SSG Ryan, worked strategically to qualify each of our new facilitators. They worked unique schedules to cover all local NCOA Norming and dropped in to observe some of their AI and PI time to see how they were progressing with the Lesson Plans. Each new facilitator was assigned a PLT mentor to assist in norming and their AI/PI development and evaluations. The mentors, SSG Davis, SSG Aguilera and SSG McLean, developed a training plan to get these new facilitators trained utilizing cadre as students and providing unique feedback to develop the best SGL and SSGL the Army has to offer! These three facilitators have earned their Commandants Badge this week! Congratulations and welcome to the team!
