Cassandra Glos is awarded the Jerri L Taylor Award for Individual Outstanding Contributions

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs

Cassandra Glos, office manager for the Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Office of Strategic Plans, consistently sought out ways to learn and take on new duties, in addition to her normal position description, and implemented changes that would enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of DLA Distribution.

Due to Glos’ constant and seamless efforts at maintaining the administrative functions for Strategic Plans personnel, the team has maintained all the required training for their roles, and has never found themselves short on resources to accomplish the mission.

In addition to her normal duties, Glos voluntarily assisted the continuity of operations program manager as she completed all the certification requirements to be a Federal Emergency Management Agency Level 1 planner. Her decision to do this made her an invaluable asset in the 2019 annual update of three different continuity plans. Extending beyond her local reach she assisted all 17 distribution centers within the continental United States with updating their continuity plans.

As manager of the classified storage and communications security programs for Strategic Plans, she converted a conference room to a secure, open storage facility. From beginning to the current maintenance of the storage space, Glos has taken the lead in planning, coordination and training of all the necessary personnel. The effective reach of this initiative has allowed Strategic Plans to more efficiently and effectively conduct their work.

Glos has voluntarily stepped up to assume even more responsibility and take on training to ensure that vulnerabilities in the operational chain are mitigated. Glos’ work ethic and tireless devotion to DLA Distribution has set her apart from her peers as she has, and continues to, exemplify the warfighter first mantra of DLA.
