Shipbuilders Break
Heart Walk Record
More than 1,000 NNS employees, family and friends signedup for the Hampton Roads Heart Walk, the largest group of
employees from one company to ever register for this event.
NNS-registered participants walked approximately twomiles around the Peninsula Town Center Oct. 17.
“I came out to show my support for those fighting heart
disease and also those who have been affected by the
disease in one way or another,” said Foreman Kimberly
Jordan-Dillard. “My mom has congestive heart failure
and my best friend has a defibrillator, so I see the struggles
they go through. I think it’s great that we as a company
can participate in an event like this. NNS’ support here is
General Foreman Charles Wilson was a member of the
“Sub Shop Happy Hearts” team. “My mother and father
both had heart issues so I like supporting the Heart Walk
to bring awareness to heart health,” he said. “I try to get
our team at work to support causes like this – we like to
volunteer as a team.”

Shipbuilders Attend After-Work
Last week, more than 30 employees attended
a leadership development opportunity
sponsored by the company’s Management
Development Center (MDC), O25 Performance
Coaching Program and In-Service Carrier
(ISCVN) leadership. The after-work session
was held three times on Wednesday, Oct. 14 to
accommodate employees on each shift.
Chris Miner, vice president of ISCVN, kicked
off the 4 p.m. session. “Being here today shows
that you’re committed to investing in your own
development and growth,” Miner told attendees.
“Every day, every one of us has an opportunity
to lead and I challenge you to think about the
ways in which you can be a better leader both
here at work and at home.”
During the session, participants watched a
webcast featuring Aja Brown, the mayor of the
City of Compton, California. Brown discussed
how she was able to convince a community
disrupted by violence to come together. By
getting community groups to sit down and
talk about their differences, Brown was able to
reduce the city’s crime rate by 78 percent during
her first year as mayor.
“Listening to Aja was very inspiring,” said
Will Sears. “When she became mayor, she came
in with a different approach and leadership
style than the leaders before her – she thought
outside the box.”
More than 30 employees attended the after work leadercast on Wednesday, Oct. 14. Photos by John Whalen
April Barnes thought it was great how Brown was able to get various community groups to meet
and discuss their issues instead of acting out violently. “Getting buy-in from the community was
crucial for Brown,” she said. “Being a new foreman myself, I understand that in order to get results,
team buy-in is absolutely critical. It’s important that everyone knows the big picture and comes
together to work towards a common goal.”
Sears added, “When you bring people together and they share their positive and negative opinions
it makes for a good outcome – similar to a battery that needs both positive and negative power to
make it work.”
Thomas Hayes said that he left the session inspired. “When I walk out of this room I’m going to set
my future goals on a much larger scale, collaborate with others more and give those who don’t speak
up often a chance to have their opinions heard.”
The next Leadercast event will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 11. View flier for additional information.
Shipbuilders Break Heart Walk Record
Mike Miller (X75), participated as a member of the largest NNS team, “The
Love Trotters” with 227 walkers. “I walk at lunch all the time,” he said. “I
typically get around 8,000 steps in before I go home from work each day. I
smoked for 22 years and I have sleep apnea, so I try to stay fit. Events like
the Heart Walk that promote good health are very important to me.”
This year, NNS employees raised more than $14,000 in donations to
support the American Heart Association. Watch a highlights video of the
walk on Yardnet.

Engineers Attend SNAME Dinner
Newport News Shipbuilding engineers attended the Society of Naval Architects and Marine
Engineers (SNAME) dinner on Oct. 1 where guest speaker Martin Blount spoke about performance
design and its role in naval architecture. The international organization focuses on the advancement
of maritime and ocean engineering and offers growth and leadership opportunities to its members.
“SNAME provides me an opportunity to learn and grow both as a leader and an engineer,” said Test
Engineering Manager John Edwards. “My work at the shipyard is relatively focused. SNAME allows
me to remain a well-rounded engineer.”

NNS’ United Way Campaign Set to Begin Thursday
Newport News Shipbuilding’s campaign to benefit the United Way (UW)
of the Virginia Peninsula will run Thursday, Oct. 22 through Friday,
Nov. 6. This year’s theme is “Shipbuilders Carrying Ocean Deep
NNS Campaign Co-chairs Cassie Burks
(O26) and Rob Spitzer (K70), pictured on the
right, held a training session for departmental
coordinators Monday, Oct. 19 in Bldg. 520.
During the meeting, Spitzer went over
coordinator roles and responsibilities and
answered questions from attendees.
“Coordinators are the life of this campaign,” said Burks. “These men and
women are the face of the United Way in our company and we rely on
them to educate employees about the organization and the role they play
in our local community.”
The goal for this year’s campaign is $1.5M. Employees who donate will
have the option to select a specific organization within the UW to give
money to or to let the UW select the organization, where funds are most
needed. Those who donate more than $150 will receive a “SmartCard,”
which includes deals and discounts at businesses and restaurants in the
Hampton Roads area.
The Enrollment Guide can be found on Yardnet. Turn to p. 5 to view this
year’s poster. Departmental coordinators will be showing a video about
the campaign and communicating additional information this week.

The fall season is here and with it comes an end to daylight savings time for 2015. On Sunday, November 1st at 2:00 a.m. the clocks will turn back an hour.
Your safety is of the utmost importance to us - so please use caution. Here are a few tips on staying safe from Security and Emergency Management (O15).
Remember to always keep items secured and hidden from plain view inside
your vehicle. It is always best to lock items in trunk when applicable.
Walk or jog when the streets are dark or deserted.
Have a plan. Know what you would do if a certain situation arises.
Display cash or any inviting targets such as cell phones, hand-held
electronics or expensive jewelry and clothing.
Trust your instincts and remain alert – if a situation seems dangerous or
threatening call 911 and report the crime to the Police or *911 or 380-2222 for
NNS Security.
Be distracted when using mobile devices outdoors.
If you know you’re going to be working late, try to park your vehicle closer to
your building or exit gate.
Leave your vehicle running when it’s unattended. Give strangers a ride for
any reason or let them into your vehicle.
Let someone know when you’re leaving and inform them when you arrive at
your destination.
Indicate where you live to a person you don’t know.
If possible, park in well-lighted areas with good visibility and close to
walkways, stores and other people. Always have your keys available.
Give up your life. If you are robbed or assaulted, immediately call 911 and
report the crime to the Police or *911 or 380-2222 for Newport News
Shipbuilding Security. Try to describe the attacker accurately. Your actions
can help prevent someone else from becoming a victim.
When out walking at night or before daylight, try to have a friend walk with
you for company and comfort. Remember, there is safety in numbers.
If you must walk alone to your vehicle and feel uncomfortable, call the NNS
Security Command Center (SCC) at 380-4031. If available, an officer will
patrol the vicinity of your destination.
If you have a car problem while at work (e.g. won’t start, has a flat tire, etc.),
stay inside and call for help. Wait inside your locked car until assistance
arrives. For non-emergencies, call a roadside service provider or NNS
Security at 380-4031.
Always lock your vehicle, even if it’s in your own driveway.
Program emergency numbers into your cell phone and be prepared to use them
if necessary. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you think someone
is following you, switch directions or cross the street.
If you witness or are a victim of a crime, please report it immediately to NNS
Security or the local police agency for that city.
Engage in conversation if confronted on the street, politely decline and keep
as much distance from the person as possible.
Open your door. If a stranger knocks on your door, don’t let them enter your
residence. If they will not leave your property, call 911 – no exceptions!
