    CHAMBERSBURG Pa. -- Letterkenny Army Depot recognized some of its top performers during a town hall held April 18.

    Col. Ricky L. Allbritton, commander, Letterkenny Army Depot, presented David Hockenberry, a water treatment plant operator in the Directorate of Public Works, with the Department of the Army Civilian Service Achievement Medal in recognition of being named LEAD's Wage Grade employee of the quarter for the first quarter.

    Hockenberry has been a member of the LEAD team since November 2004. As the subject matter expert for the water treatment plant with over 18 years of service, he brings a wealth of knowledge, leadership and dedication to the organization.

    "This is a tremendous honor considering all the talented artisans and coworkers that perform amazing work throughout the depot on such a wide variety of machinery and vehicles," Hockenberry said. "It takes a team to accomplish the mission. I am honored to receive this award on behalf of myself and my teammates."

    Allbritton also presented Carla Barnett, a transportation assistant in the Directorate of Supply and Transportation, with the Department of the Army Civilian Service Achievement Medal in honor of her selection as the General Schedule employee of the quarter for the first quarter.

    Barnett began her career at the depot in 2008 and utilizes her positive attitude, selfless service and hard work to complete her duties.

    "I just come in, do my job and assist others how I would like to be taken care of if I needed assistance," Barnett remarked. "My reward is the relationships with the people who count on me to ensure their shipments get where they're supposed to be when they're supposed to be here."

    In addition to the employees of the quarter, Allbritton also awarded several additional employees for exceptional performance.
