Air Force Senior Airman Matthew P. Baker has graduated from Airman Leadership School at Charleston Air Force Base, S.C.

The five-week course is designed to train senior airmen to understand their positions in the Air Force organizational structure, leadership, communications skills, and profession of arms, which are needed for professional development to be effective noncommissioned officers. Airmen are prepared and better equipped to serve as supervisors, managers and rating officials as they progress in their enlisted military careers.

The school is the first of three levels of professional military education programs used to develop and cultivate leadership and supervisory skills, and is a required course for airmen to complete prior to being promoted to the rank of staff sergeant.

Airman Baker is a flying crew chief with four years of military service.

He is the son of Paul E. and Sandra L. Baker of Tennessee Ave. His wife, Deborah, is the daughter of Gary Stein and Debbie Viga of Craighead St.

The airman is a 2003 graduate of Keystone Oaks High School.
