DAHLGREN, Va. – Center for Surface Combat Systems (CSCS) announced Oct. 26 its Small Activity Civilian of the Quarter (COQ) for the third quarter of 2012.

Donna Noyes-Sprankles, a Military Support specialist for CSCS Detachment (Det) San Diego, was thrilled to be selected.

“I’m honored to receive this award,” she said. “I sincerely appreciate our Officer-in-Charge Lt. Cmdr. Roy Henkle and the CSCS domain.”

As a Military Support specialist, Noyes-Sprankles is responsible for administrative, budgetary, security, and an assortment of collateral duties that ensure command operations.

She has been part of the Navy’s mission as a civilian for more than 23 years.

“I reported to work at CSCS Det San Diego, known at that time as Aegis Training Support Group (ATSG) in 1991, and every day I am blessed to still be part of this community,” she said.

Henkle said that Noyes-Sprankles deserved to be recognized because of her sustained superior performance.

“Donna has done so much for Det San Diego and CSCS as a whole,” he said. “It just seemed logical to submit her for this award. Her strong work ethic and positive attitude have helped shape the detachment into the learning site it is today; a training center that not only trains, but also mentors and educates the Navy of today and tomorrow.”

Henkle said she is a driven and proven team player and also received the prestigious Meritorious Civilian Service Award in 2011.

“I absolutely enjoy the people at CSCS Det San Diego most of all,” Noyes-Sprankles said. “They have become an extension of my family. There is no greater sense of accomplishment than to see a Sailor advance in his or her career and think that just maybe I was able to assist him or her in some, small way toward reaching their goals. My husband likes to say, ‘Life, it’s just a walk in the park,’ and I truly love the walk I am currently on.”
