Air Force Tech Sgt. Toby Harter, formerly of Colome, received an unexpected STEP up award at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyo.
Harter, a 2007 graduate of Colome High School, is the 90th missile wing airman leadership school professional military education instructor.
Harter is the son of Ferman and Sally Harter of Colome.
The program supplements existing airmen promotion programs and is designed to accommodate unique circumstances that, in the commander’s judgment, clearly warrant promotion.
