U.S. Army Warrant Officer 1 Sean E. Adkins has graduated from the Warrant Officer Candidate School at Fort Rucker, Ala.
The course is designed to certify warrant officers as technically and tactically competent to serve as warrant officers in designated career specialties. The officer must successfully complete the course prior to being appointed to the rank of warrant officer one.
The primary focus of the school is military occupational specialty specific, augmented with common-core subjects as designated by a Task Site Selection Board and monitored by the Warrant Officer Career Center.
The course also prepares newly appointed officers for their first duty assignments and all subsequent assignments as warrant officers and chief warrant officers in the active Army, National Guard or Reserve.
Adkins is an electronic warfare technician assigned to the Headquarters Company, 1-25th Stryker Brigade Combat Team at Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska. He has served in the military for 14 years.
He is the son of Leonard and Kathleen Adkins of Streetsboro. His wife, Kimberly, is the daughter of Willie Allen of Georgetown, Ky., and Mary Allen of North Pole, Alaska.
The warrant officer is a 1989 graduate of Cloverleaf Senior High School in Lodi.
