For the second consecutive year, Pam Hall, contractor security officer at Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) was recognized as the COGAR Security Group Officer of the Year. For those who have come to know Hall’s friendly, professional demeanor and superior customer service skills, the award comes as no surprise.

Aegis BMD is just one of 17 COGAR Security Group sites around the nation, making Hall’s selection all the more impressive. “She was head and shoulders above all,” said Dale Delaporte, director of Aegis BMD Security and Program Protection.

Delaporte also praised Hall for her quick actions in responding to an employee with a medical emergency.

The Missouri-native was predictably humble about the recognition, calling it “fantastic.”

What are the keys to being successful in her line of work? “Personality and hard work,” said Hall, who has worked at Aegis BMD for five years.

Her supervisor, Terry Lanham, gave a more in-depth description of Hall’s qualities. “Her energy level is unwavering, it’s amazing,” she said. “She jumps into every single task… she’s unstoppable. It’s her personality, her energy level, her work ethic.”

When she isn’t keeping Aegis BMD and its employees secure, Hall enjoys all manner of activities and spending time with her family. For her next adventure, Hall will compete in the “Pretty Muddy” obstacle course and fun run alongside members of her family in September.

Hall is currently training for the event and left nothing to question when asked whether she planned on walking or running. “Oh yeah,” she said with a grin. “I’m running it.”
