    LOUISVILLE, Tenn. – The I.G. Brown Training and Education Center’s administrative professionals were called outside with the organization’s leadership here this week for a token of their importance: a group photo.

    Mrs. Sabrina Tullock, Assistant to the Commandant, Chief Master Sergeant Paul H. Lankford EPME Center, and Ms. Karen Jonasson, Executive Assistant, TEC, were photographed with the Commander, Col. Kevin Donovan; the Deputy Commander, Lt. Col. David Meece; and the Commandant/Senior Enlisted Advisor, Chief Master Sgt. Edward Walden Sr., April 24, 2017, in front of the Minuteman statue outside the Patriot Hall building on McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base in east Tennessee.

    The photo helped to honor their service for Administrative Professionals Day, a national observance April 26, where staff appreciates those key administrators who support an organization’s success.

    Mrs. Tullock began serving with the TEC in 1997 as an Airman, then served with the National Guard Bureau, returned, and then retired from uniformed service five years ago to continue service in the civilian workforce.

    Ms. Jonasson joined the TEC four years ago from the Air Reserve Personnel Center where she served in a senior retirement technician position. She has 28 years’ service in the civilian workforce.

    With so many behind the scenes administrative duties that help make TEC function, they said that they work well together.

    “Karen writes amazing, and she says that I have computer skills, so we call on each other,” said Tullock.

    Ms. Jonasson agreed.

    “We assist each other with the talents that we have,” said Jonasson.

    Resembling their importance, esteem and comradery, Mrs. Tullock likened administrative professionals to the supports for a bridge.

    "Without those supports, a bridge will fail," said Tullock.
