NAVAL AIR WARFARE CENTER WEAPONS DIVISION, CHINA LAKE, Calif. - Eight Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division employees graduated from the Naval Acquisition Development Program during an Oct. 10 ceremony at China Lake.

“This is quite an accomplishment,” said Danny Gresham, director of the Logistics and Industrial Operations Group, as he presented the graduates with their certificates. “You’ve got a lot to look forward to, and I hope this was something you enjoyed and really learned from.”

The goal of NADP is to provide employees with opportunities for professional development and career-broadening assignments to promote growth in finance, contracting, logistics, science and engineering.

As part of their development, NADP interns do rotational assignments and have access to mentoring opportunities as well as program and facility tours.

The WD graduates toured places such as Naval Supply Systems Command, and Naval Sea Systems Command helping further prepare them for their current work with projects including Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile, Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile Extended Range, and Air Intercept Missile-9X Sidewinder.

“Going through multiple programs was something I never got to do when I initially started working for the Navy,” said graduate Brian Lau.

When asked what advice she had for other NADP interns graduate Robin Sears said, “Ask for work that interests you that you might not be given on a rotation. That way, you can get experience and you won’t miss out on it.”

The graduation ceremony honored Brian Armstrong, Dwayne Baly, Junie Garnenez, Brian Lau, Lindy Page, Bonnie Patterson, Stacy Potten and Robin Sears.

<p>China Lake, in California’s Mojave Desert, is home to NAVAIR’s Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD). Few areas in the world offer such wide variety of geographical features in close proximity...mountains, deserts, canyons, caves and forests. The unencroached air and land ranges at China Lake provide unmatched geographic conditions in which to develop and test weapon systems and explore tactics for desert and mountain environments.</p>
