Cherline Saint Louis    Prince Jarbo

(Left) Cherline Saint Louis, A1C, previously assigned to the Commander’s Executive Administration in the 412th Test Wing, was attending Southeastern University and her program of study was a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies.  Cherline wishes to obtain her degree to become a youth pastor; and establish a non-profit organization which will create internships and opportunities for minority students around the United States.  She was recently assigned to a new duty station, Little Rock AFB, which happens to be located where her husband is, and is now using her scholarship at Liberty University pursing the same degree. 

(Right) Prince Jarbo, SrA , is assigned to the 412th Comptroller Squadron and is a Financial Analysis Technician.  Prince is studying at the University of Arizona (Global Campus) to earn his Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Economics.  He was born and raised in Liberia, and at the age of 12 migrated to the United States.  His goal is to continue to strengthen the organization Project Change, which he and his team took their vision into reality.  With their efforts they have provided empowerment and hope to Liberian youth.  Project Change is targeted at high school students focusing on entrepreneurship, volunteerism, and taking initiative. 

The Edwards Air Force Base Civilian Military Support Group is honored to award these Airmen with these scholarships in memoy of the organization's founder, Aida O'Connor.  Civ-Mil's annual awarding of scholarships to active duty personnel assigned to Edwards Air Force Base is made possible by the generous contributions and monetary donations of community memebers to this organization.  We express our heartfelt thanks to all who contribute to this activity.

Civ-Mil Welcomes New Arrivals

The Edwards Civ-Mil group held its third annual meet and greet recently where new arrivals to Edwards Air Force Base and those attending the Mojave Test Pilot School got a chance to visit with 44 vendors and learn what the Antelope Valley has to offer.
Originally, the event was organized to help the non-U.S. military families coming to work on the F-35 program from Europe, but this year the invitation was extended to all active duty military at Edwards AFB.
“When Edwards called and asked if Civ-Mil would include Americans arriving, we said ‘of course,’” said John Fergione, president of Civ-Mil. The organization exists to create a friendly association between civic leaders and military personnel at Edwards.
Guests enjoyed “Ruth” the barn owl from the Devil’s Punchbowl and got a close look at a Gopher snake and the  luminosity of a scorpion, while others enjoyed  crafts, robotic demonstrations and learned about 3D Printing. Families enjoyed dinner provided by the UAV at the Pioneer Event Center.
“I wish we had something like this four years ago when we arrived,” said Marlies Van de Pol from Holland. “In our pre-visit we get three days to find a house, school, doctor — everything. This is so helpful.”
Newcomers are looking for everything from haircuts to tea shops, sporting stores, car leases etc.
When the Van de Pols arrived they were looking for elementary schools, their tour extend they are looking for a high school and other activities.
Believing in the mission, Van de Pol is now involved in the meet and greet outreach.
