The governors work ethic certificate

Opting into the GWEC was one of the best decisions I ever made in my school career. It taught me responsibility and duty. This is very important because in the Air Force your entire job is based on responsibility and duty to your country. It taught me how to become a leader in the work force. To always help those who need it. Because of me joining the GWEC I have become a better Airman, citizen, and worker. Thank you for giving me this opportunity!
