Why this Sailor was selected: IS3 Hobbs completed her primary watch qualification after being onboard for only six weeks, while also getting involved with JEA and MWR. 

Before she completed her qualification, she showed great initiative by creating a PQS study guide, so future Sailors can get qualified as quickly as she did. IS3 has also taken over as one of the MIOC's RPPOs.
