By NSWC Crane Corporate Communications

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) held its annual Command Awards ceremony on July 28, 2022. More than 30 employees were awarded for their hard work, expertise, and contributions to the federal laboratory’s mission.

“We are thrilled to be able to recognize our employees in this meaningful way,” said Dr. Angie Lewis (SES), NSWC Crane technical director. “Our team consistently delivers in pursuit of our nation’s defense, and this ceremony is an opportunity to show our appreciation.”

NSWC Crane conducted a call for nominations, and held selection panels to review and rate nominations to determine the winners of each category. Several other awards were distributed from partner organization Federally Employed Women (FEW).

“NSWC Crane employees are some of the first called when the Navy or the nation has a defense need,” said NSWC Crane Commanding Officer CAPT Duncan McKay. “This event is a chance to recognize and share those stories of employees going above and beyond to support the warfighter.”
