Sr. Quality Engineer Brenette Wilder and Lead Project Engineer Dwight Drake from NNSA’s National Security Campus in Kansas City, Mo, were among seven individuals recently recognized as the 2015 Black Achiever’s Society Honorees. They were chosen for their educational, social and economic contributions to the community.
The two join nearly 500 African American businessmen and women in the Black Achiever’s Society who were nominated by their employers over the past 40 years as exemplary leaders in their corporate roles as well as their involvement in the community.
Wilder, a 17-year NSC veteran, serves the local community in a multitude of ways. Her main focus is the Kansas City Teen Summit, an organization she founded in 2005, with the mission to help teens and battered women.
Throughout Drake’s 31-year tenure at the NSC, he has been a wealth of knowledge for his colleagues and has been called on countless times to lead teams and activities to improve business results. He leads projects tied to recent transformation and mentors employees seeking LEAN, Six Sigma or Project Management Professional certifications.
