T Sgt. Colleen Rafferty Receives Promotion

Colleen Rafferty has been promoted in the U.S. Air Force under the Stripes for Exceptional Performers (STEP) program to the rank of technical sergeant.

Promoted individuals must have performed outstandingly under unique conditions or recognized for exceptional services rendered in specific situations. Each promotion is warranted by clearly exceptional circumstances, considering the airman's potential to perform and qualify him/her for service in the higher grade.

Colleen is an information management supervisor assigned to the 3rd Space Launch Squadron, Patrick Air Force Base, Cocoa Beach, Fla. She has 11 years of military service.

Her parents are Terrance and Paulette Rafferty of Hallstead, PA.

The technical sergeant graduated in 1991 from Blue Ridge High School, and received an Associate Degree in the year 2000 from the Community College of the Air Force, Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, AL.
