Before her recent transition to the World Maritime University in Sweden where she is a lecturer, Lt. Cmdr. Megan Drewniak worked at Coast Guard Sector Miami where she made such an impact, her command nominated her for both the 2016 Capt. John G. Witherspoon Inspirational Leadership Award and the 2016 Military Times Coast Guardsman of the Year.
Military leadership is often perceived as those who hold a high rank, part of a command staff, who foster the development of their junior members to one day become leaders themselves. But as with Coast Guardsmen like Petty Officer 2nd Class Noel Cordero, a junior member aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Alex Haley, a good leader can come from any rank.
