Stillin named top airman


STILLIN STILLIN Air Force Staff Sgt. Rebecca Stillin, a 2010 Leland Public School graduate, was recently named Airman of the Year in her unit at Scott Air Force Base in southern Illinois.

She is the daughter of Patricia and Terrence Stillin of Leelanau Township.

Staff Sgt. Stillin has been working as a medical technician with an aeromedical evacuation squadron and won Airman of the Year honors in competition with other airmen at the squadron and group levels.

She was recently reassigned to special duty for a year as an administrative assistant to the chief of staff of the joint-service U.S. Transportation Command, headquartered at Scott Air Force Base. The job has required extensive travel, according to her parents.

“She (Becky) is very dedicated and driven in her career,” said her mom, Patricia Stillin. “Leelanau will always be home to her.”
