WIESBADEN, Germany – A U.S. Army in Europe warrant officer has been named the Army's top human resources officer and warrant officer for 2012.

Chief Warrant Officer 2 Camilla Henry received the 2012 Timothy J. Maude Medal for Distinguished Achievement, Adjutant General’s Corps Officer and Warrant Officer of the Year.

“I am humbled and honored to be recognized with this award,” Henry said. “It proves that hard work does pay off, and I know there are so many other warrant officers that are doing an exceptional job every day.”

“The Soldiers and officers I work with on a daily basis, those past and present, were indispensable in helping me achieve this award,” she said. “My officer-in-charge, Maj. Rapanotti, for submitting me for the award, it shows that she believed in me.”

Henry, a native of Jamaica, Queens, N.Y., serves as a human resources technician for the 172nd Separate Infantry Brigade in Grafenwoehr, Germany, and has been in the Army 11 years. She oversees all personnel actions, awards and strength management for the brigade.

This award gives special recognition to an officer and warrant officer who best reflect Lt. Gen. Maude’s values in their service to Soldiers, commanders, families and the Army during the previous calendar year.

Maude was the highest-ranking officer killed during the attacks on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, served as the deputy chief of staff for personnel for U.S. Army Europe and later, the U.S. Army. USAREUR named its personnel directorate headquarters on Campbell Barracks in Heidelberg, Germany for Maude, and the U.S. Army Human Resources Command named its Center of Excellence in the U.S. for him as well.

“The importance of this competition is to recognize various achievements throughout the human resources community,” Henry said. “It strengthens the AG Corps by showcasing what HR professionals contribute to the Army by taking care of Soldiers and their families on a daily basis. It shows the relevance of the AG Corps and the values and traditions that we uphold.”
