TSC selects Instructor of the Quarter
Training Support Center (TSC), Great Lakes, honored its 2012 Instructor of the Quarter (IOQ) for the third quarter during an award ceremony Oct. 18.
Navy Military Training Instructor (NMTI) FC1(SW) Joel Ellis was selected.
“It is an honor to have been selected. As instructors, we set the example for our new sailors, and we are the positive role models for them to emulate,” Ellis said. The goal of a Navy military training instructor is a vital one. Our goal is to ensure that when our sailors transit to the fleet, that they are motivated, focused, and prepared to meet any challenges, whether they are personal or professional, head-on.”
Born in Selma, Ala., Ellis was surrounded by family members who served in the military, who contributed heavily to his decision to join the Navy in 1998.
Now returned to Great Lakes, Ellis is an NMTI and leading petty officer of student indoctrination at TSC where he teaches topics to students such as: Sexual Assault Prevention, Sexual Harassment, Hazing, Fraternization, Navy’s Zero Tolerance Drug Policy, Suicide Prevention, and Responsible Alcohol Use. He also instructs Personal Financial Management Training to the sailors. Student Indoctrination has an average annual throughput of about 13,000 sailors that they teach.
“Our tasks as Navy military training instructors may seem endless, but we take great comfort and pleasure in knowing that we are having a positive impact on our sailors and that they are prepared to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” Ellis said.
