173rd Fighter Wing Senior Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year - Master Sergeant Rene Horne

In 2015 Horne developed an occupational health tracking tool, streamlining the occupation health exam compliance by six percent. Her management of the occupation health program resulted in maintaining an exam rate above 93-percent. Horne was handpicked by the National Guard Bureau as subject matter expert for a staff assistance visit inspection and was actively recruited to be the next career field functional manager. She conducted a vertical inspection on the 142nd public health programs, directly resulting in a highly effect rating during their wing Unit Effectiveness Inspection. Horne is also dedicated to self-improvement, working on her master’s in Public Health while maintaining a 4.0 grade point average. She dedicates her time to the base and community as an avid supporter of base member career progression, wing family day, and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
