MT. Juliet, Tennessee (WTVF) —Schools in Wilson County, running in Hume, relied on the Air National Guard to fill the Air Force.
Captain Charles Agin, A1C Olay Phimphivong, and Master Sgt. Rex Soberano serves the 118th Wing of the Tennessee Air National Guard.
“So we are trained for operational support at various capabilities for our mission in Berryfield,” said Captain Agin.
But this day is not about analytics support. They are wearing an apron in Greenhill High School on Mount Juliet. Mission: Feed hungry teenagers.
“One of the statistics they cast on us is that we have eight staff members servicing more than 1,000 students.
Like many companies, schools are experiencing labor shortages.
“We need them, we need all the help we can get, that’s where it gets-not because of anyone. Hiring staff throughout the district. And we made every effort to maintain it, “said Bert Barker, a spokesman for Wilson County School.
The 118th has been volunteering in various roles in the area for two years. Captain Agin sees the service as part of their calling.
“You serve your community, whether it’s a disaster, just a shortage of staff, it’s serving pizza, or helping to recover from the flood.”
