In a wing-wide announcement, Col. Bryan White, 168th Wing commander, said, “It is my privilege to announce that Chief Teresa Renson has been selected as the wing’s next command chief! From a competitive field of awesome candidates, Chief Renson’s experience, skills, and demonstrated leadership were clearly the benchmark for what the wing needs now as its next command chief.”

Renson will replace Chief Master Sgt. James Wolverton who is retiring this summer.

“She has done amazing things as the Mission Support Group superintendent and we’re excited to have her serve at the next higher level,” White said.
