Swanton, Ohio --
Master Sgt. Robin Wiseman, recruiting and retention manager assigned to the Ohio Air National Guard’s 180th Fighter Wing, has earned the title of Ohio’s Air National Guard Recruiting and Retention Manager of the Year for 2018.
As the 180FW’s senior noncommissioned officer in charge of recruiting and retention, Wiseman led the team to close out 2018 with an overall manning strength of nearly 103 percent and helped maintain the retention and reenlistment rates above 90 percent for the year, exceeding National Guard Bureau goals for each of those areas, guaranteeing the wing maintains professionally trained and deployment capable Airmen.
Ensuring all 180FW Airmen understand the education benefits available to them as members of the Ohio National Guard, Wiseman was a major partner in coordinating an education fair at the wing, hosting four local-area universities, allowing Airmen to register on-the-spot. During the fair, Wiseman was on-hand to further explain how the GI Bill and Ohio National Guard Scholarship Programs can help Airmen pay for college tuition and fees, and offered the ability to register for benefits during the fair.
Among her many other accomplishments within the recruiting and retention field, Wiseman has made her own professional growth a priority, attending multiple leadership and development courses, most recently enrolling in the Senior Enlisted Joint Professional Military Education course.
In her spare time, Wiseman dedicates her time to mentoring local-area youth as a volleyball coach for the Toledo Diocese Catholic Youth Organization and delivering meals to those in need throughout the holidays.
