3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012KRS continues favorable relationship with RMI NTC Members of the Kwajalein Range Services senior management team stand with recipients of the 2012 scholarships, presented in a ceremony in June. KRS awarded nine Kwajalein Atoll graduates with scholarships totaling $6,500.Photo courtesy of Krystal PetersonBy Catherine Layton Associate editorKwajalein Range Services president Cynthia Rivera met recently with Allison Nashion, the newly appointed director of the Republic of the Marshall Islands National Training Council to discuss how the two organizations can do more to provide training opportunities for RMI employees. Harden Lelet, KRS special assistant for RMI affairs and NTC board member, was in attendance as well. The introductory meeting enabled talks about what the future holds and where the NTC intends on taking the board. “The focus and the objective of the NTC is mainly trying to come up and reshape training opportunities for the RMI workforce. We discussed the KRS Marshallese Training and Employment Program, as well,” said Lelet. The MTEP can work in concert with the NTC to provide opportunities for the current KRS Marshallese workforce. “NTC has RMI government money that goes towards paying for training of RMI citizens. That is a bene t to both the citizens and KRS as well if the workers that are trained are in disciplines where we are seeking quali ed candidates,” said Rivera. After going through training, they are considered preferred candidates. KRS has also utilized the training funding in cooperation with the NTC to send KRS RMI employees to training. KRS will pay for travel expenses and the actual course is paid for by NTC. A recent example was the radar training. “Late last year, we had seven certi cates that were awarded at marine services, and they were speci cally for marine radar operators and radar observer endorsements,” said Michelle Novotny, KRS employee relations manager.While the NTC wants to provide training to RMI citizens so they have the skills to be employable, KRS is interested in providing training for current employees, and having a quali ed candidate pool. Part of the MTEP includes building a monthly report tracking how many promotions are accomplished on a monthly basis for the RMI workforce. Also tracked is how many positions that were previously off-island contractor positions, how many are being converted and are getting lled with RMI workers. “We have set goals that have been established for each contract year. To date, we have exceeded the goals that are set each year. We want to show that we are softening our footprint on Kwajalein and helping our RMI workforce become more self-suf cient,” said Novotny.“What was accomplished in our last contract year was we promoted 49 RMI workers into positions of greater responsibility. We had a goal of converting two contract positions to quali ed RMI workforce, and we actually lled six positions. It is a good success story,” said Novotny.Both the NTC and MTEP want to increase awareness of the programs as well. “We are seeking input for additional opportunities for training where the need arises,” said Rivera. Outside of the purview of training, KRS has a scholarship program for RMI high school graduates whose parent works for the contractor. This past June, nine high school graduates from Ebeye schools were awarded scholarships totaling $6,500 from KRS. One student from Calvary, six from Kwajalein Atoll High School and two from Seventh Day Adventist were recipients. The scholarship amounts ranged from $500 to $2,000. The money for the awards comes from the KRS parent companies, Bechtel and Lockheed Martin. “This is the third year KRS has done this, and we have expanded the amount each year, in order to help more students each year. Our goal is to contribute positively to the community,” said Rivera. Senior management traveled to Ebeye for the presentations, and met with the families and the students. “We brought over refreshments. We all spoke. They were all so grateful,” said Lelet.

The eld included approximately 40 Atoll visitors, so the course was reviewed in more detail than usual. The start got off a little after 6 a.m. Eighteen participants completed two island perimeters, or 13.04 miles, and the rest did one loop at 6.52 miles, with some changing their minds on the way. All witnessed a beauteous sunrise from the golf course vicinity. Highlights included local ninth grader Michael Sykes, who was the runaway winner at two loops in 1:41:23, missing that age group record set back in 2000 by just under a minute. Two ladies tied for rst at 13.04 miles; training buddies Alex McGlinn and Christie Cardillo in MenÂ’s League Spartans: 5-2-1 Crush: 5-3 Locals: 3-5 FC Swollen: 2-5-11:57:29. A division record was broken by Ray Drefus, who lowered Jack CareyÂ’s 2010 Social Security eligible record from 2:28:12 to 2:24:54. SSEs are age 62 and above. For the one-looper, the rst place male was Shawn Hebert in 47:35, for the second year in a row. First one-looper for the ladies was Krystal Peterson in 48:46. Of the speedier performances by a visiting soldier was Jason AlbrightÂ’s 48:06, which took rst in the MenÂ’s Masters Division for one loop and Michael SchoenbeckÂ’s 1:53:16, which was second overall for two loops. Participants, families and friends gathered at Emon Pavilion at noon after the race, for presentation of certi cates and custom T-shirts and also enjoyed a holiday barbecue. Half a dozen Kwajalein Boy Scouts with their leaders graciously staffed two course-side water stations, handing very cold and appreciated water to the participants. 13.04 Miles:Female Master (40+) Kathy Reith 3:37:09 Female Open (20-39) Alex McGlinn 1:57:29 Christie Cardillo 1:57:29Male Master (40+) Mike Savage 1:57:17 Male Open (20-39) Michael Schoenbeck 1:53:16Male Teen (13-19) Michael Sykes 1:41:23Social Security Eligible (62+) Ray Drefus 2:24:546.52 Miles:Female Master (40+) Karen Brady 1:04:40Female Open (20-39) Krystal Peterson 0:48:46Female Teen (13-19) Hannah Delange 1:03:44Female Youth (1-12) Julia Sholar 1:06:05Male Master (40+) Jason Albright 0:48:06Male Open (20-39) Shawn Hebert 0:47:35Male Teen (13-19) Kendall Westhoff 0:51:06Male Youth (1-12) Ben Jahnke 1:08:24First place nishers by division Seventh grader Ben Jahnke took the male youth division with a time of 1:08:24.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 Article and photos by Catherine Layton Associate editorThough we live in an extraordinary place, many times we tend to overlook opportunities afforded us at our unique locale. Manit Day is a celebration of Marshallese culture, and Kwajalein residents were treated to a fascinating glimpse into our host nation’s exceptional traditions Monday. The festivities were guided by Harden Lelet, president of the Marshallese Cultural Center. Maj. Alonzo Garcia, director of Host Nation Activities, and Col. Shannon Boehm, Commander of U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, welcomed everyone to the event, and thanked the Marshallese representatives who headed up the cultural demonstrations, prepared and served the foods and to the performers of the songs and dances. Col. Boehm also introduced and welcomed the new Republic of the Marshall Islands liaison to USAKA, Lanny Kabua.Fredly Mawilong addressed the audience on behalf of Senator Iroij Michael Kabua, and described what Manit Day represents for the Marshallese. Kabua spoke of their historic traditions, and of their ways of honoring their heritage. To begin the cultural events, Kwajalein students were invited to compete in a Manit Day poem contest. Dory DeBrum and Roanna Zackhras, the two winners, read their poems to the audience. Then the music began, performed by Ebeye’s Mon La Mike Band. They accompanied three dance groups, including Kwoj Bok Non Won, from Ebeye, who performed dances with motions emulating weaving, canoeing and food preparation. The Marshallese Women’s Jinetiptip Club from Kwajalein was up next and invited some USAKA wives, including Jeri Boehm, Paelasi Sakaio, Angeline Kabua and Christina Garcia to participate. Finally, the RiKatak students from the Kwajalein schools performed their dance, inviting their school teachers and the commander and his wife to learn a couple of the moves as well.Throughout the event, spectators were shown demonstrations of weaving, coconut husking and re making. People were introduced to gastronomical delights like coconut rice balls and pandanus fruits. Everyone seemed to enjoy all the events, evidenced by wide smiles and a comment from one child to his parents, “That was so cool—I wish we could do this every day!”

Susannah Prenoveau blended her writing talents with her children’s creative imagination at home to create stories for the pre-school set. Prenoveau wanted to get her stories published, and she wanted to include her sons in the process. She asked the boys which stories they would like to see in print, and then enlisted them to illustrate their chosen books. Zach, now 10, chose the story “Alligators Coming.” The story was inspired by a game Zach played often, pretending animals would circle his bed. Nathan, 8, chose his favorite story, “Gotta See Nathan!” which was inspired by his brother’s excitement about when Nathan was a newborn. The books were written by Prenoveau using her maiden name of Susannah Gray. Prenoveau is a training specialist for Child, Youth and School Services on Kwajalein, and is passionate about writing books. “We want to publish some more, and we are working on another one now called “Swim Soup,” that will be illustrated by Nathan.” Both boys enjoy seeing the published books, commenting, “I thought it was cool,” said Zach, although both boys think they can draw better now. They were around ve or six years old when they made the illustrations, but mom was quick to point out the drawings are perfect for preschoolers. When asked about their favorite part of the books, Nathan was eager to show his favorite page and noted, “I like Zach’s drawing in “Alligators Coming” where it says, ‘Oops, I tooted!’”Back Injury Prevention: To lift and carry safely, use your legs, not your back.
