HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – Two Air Force Life Cycle Management Center-Hanscom company grade officers received awards at an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association international conference in San Diego last month.

Second Lt. Benjamin T. Davis, a program manager on the Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar team, received the Distinguished Young AFCEAN Chapter Award. Second Lt. Michelle Boivin, Theater Battle Control Division executive officer, received the New England-Upstate New York Region’s Distinguished Young AFCEAN Award.

Both received the award in recognition of their contributions to the AFCEA Lexington-Concord Chapter.

“Lt. Davis has shown outstanding performance in all areas of his volunteering, professional and educational life,” said David Hiltz, AFCEA Lexington-Concord Chapter president.

Hiltz commended Davis for generously volunteering his time to mentor college, high school and middle school children in the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), as well as helping with the New England Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarship awards luncheon that gave out more than $42,000 to outstanding cadets.

Boivin received recognition for reaching out to more than 20 organizations to increase participation in the chapter’s 5K for STEM run.

“Her drive, positivity and invaluable dedication have resulted in notable contributions to our chapter and AFCEA as a whole,” said Hiltz. “She also was instrumental in working tirelessly prior to and during the chapter’s annual ROTC luncheon, guaranteeing a smooth execution.”
