BOLLING AFB, D.C. -- Andrew J. Stephens, 11th Wing historian, received the Outstanding Civilian Administrative Professional Award -- Executive Level during a ceremony at the Bolling Clubs April 25.

Mr. Stephens was the sole historian in the Air Force District of Washington, providing extensive historical guidance and support by interfacing with the Air Force Historian to preserve aspects of the Air Force History program, Air Force Art Office and the loaned holdings of the National Museum of the United States Air Force.

He also initiated and executed projects for the 60th Anniversary of the U.S. Air Force Committee to support three wings, one group, and a warfighting command concurrently.

The climax of his efforts in 2006 was the publication and worldwide distribution of the U.S. Air Force 60th Anniversary's official children's book, The Gremlins, at no cost to the government.

The Outstanding Civilian Administrative Professional Award was crated in 2000 to replace the "Secretary of the Year" award.
