8/7/2012 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- Master Sgt. Carl Schuett, 81st Training Support Squadron, was recently chosen for a fellowship at the Air Force Institute of Technology through the Enlisted-to-AFIT program which allows a small number of enlisted people to earn an advanced degree through AFIT.

Schuett is scheduled to begin classes in the new Cyber Operations master's degree progam at the beginning of September and graduate in March 2014. After graduation he will move to the 624 Operations Center at Lackland Air Force Base and work for 24th Air Force.

"I am honored that I get to represent Keesler and the enlisted corps at AFIT," Schuett said. "This really is an incredible opportunity to gain new skills and to be able to directly put those skills to work helping the Air Force meet its cyber operation objectives."

"Don't be afraid to apply for these opportunities when they come up, stay flexible and make learning a lifetime habit," Schuett said. "If I hadn't kept up with my bachelor's degree, even when it seemed like it was eating up all my spare time, then this program would not have been an option for me."
