Dr. Karyn Combs, or Master Sgt.Combs as she is known here, was selected as the Top Business Woman for 2005 by the American Business Women's Association.
The association recognizes one of its members annually for outstanding career and educational achievements, community involvement and professional development.
"Karyn Combs is a terrific role model, for she inspires other business women by the nature of her own success," said Carolyn Bufton Elman, executive director of the ABWA.
Dr. Combs describes herself as a continuous learner who works hard to perform at the highest levels of excellence and can remember doing so from the age of 8, teaching children English in Burma, where her parents were missionaries.She has a master's degree in education from California State University, Hayward, Calif., and a doctorate in educational leadership from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
She has been the principal of Cherokee Elementary School on Eglin Air Force Base since 1997.Under her leadership, the school was recognized as an "A+" school in 2000 and 2003, she said.
She strives to enhance the quality of her community, she said, and serves as the vice president of the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People for the Okaloosa County Branch.She was also the past president of the Fort Walton Beach Chapter of the ABWA.
To further educate the public on the contributions of African Americans, Dr. Combs is working on a book with her father titled, "An African American Quiz Book for All Americans."This book will include the biographies of past and present African Americans who aren't well known to the public.
She also applies her teaching skills in the Air Force Reserve.As the 919th Special Operations Wing Military Equal Opportunity superintendent, she teaches human relations and equal opportunity courses to reservists.Sergeant Combs is one of 76,100 Air Force Reserve Command's "citizen airmen," who balance the demands of their military service with those of their families and civilian employers.
"I hope I can inspire Air Force reservists to aim for excellence in all they do and teach them that Air Force core values are what we need to follow in order to become role models for reservists to come," she said.
