Since signing up for the Air Force three years ago, Senior Airman Nathaniel Bovell, from the 766th Specialized Contracting Squadron (SCONS) has set out to make a big impact in his short time as an Airman.

“Whether it is service, personal, or community service, Senior Airman Bovell always strives to do his absolute best,” said Tech. Sgt. Cristopher Pennock, also with the 766th SCONS.

Bovell currently serves as a Navy Construction Contract Specialist and is assigned to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) that supports Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH), Naval Aviation and shore missions.

“I enjoy working on the construction side of contracting because I am able to work and interact with the engineers and contractors,” said the Florida native. “I get to witness the culmination of my efforts and see a building get repaired because all of our combined efforts. It’s a great feeling,” he added.

Currently, Bovell is managing nearly 20 different construction projects with a combined value of more than $16.3 million dollars.

In addition to his regular job, Bovell also serves as an active member of Hickam’s Honor Guard Team and performs retirements, funerals that honor U.S. veterans and families all around the islands of Hawaii.

He is also very involved in community service. Last year, Bovell coordinated a team of 30-plus volunteers to facilitate an all-day, unit-supported softball tournament for the Special Olympics of Hawaii. He plans to serve again as volunteer coordinator for the Special Olympics basketball tournament that will be hosted this November for their Fall Classic games.

In addition to his many accolades, Bovell was recognized Airman of the 2nd Quarter for the Headquarters, Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center (HQ AFIMSC).

“He truly embodies the Air Force core value — “Excellence in All We Do,” added his supervisor, Pennock.
