Abby Butikofer, a rising junior at Warner Robins High School, has been selected to participate in the Air Force Teen Council. She is the daughter of Installation Commander Col. Mitchel and his wife, Leslie.

The council is comprised of teens who serve as a voice for their peers on base and in local communities. Teens work to resolve issues and voice concerns to the highest levels of Air Force leadership on behalf of teens globally or worldwide.

Teens who have the opportunity to brief Air Force leadership on their issues contribute to the well-being of Air Force families. By interacting with Air Force leadership in person, the teens learn more about being a visionary and strategic thinker; they no longer think in terms of their installation but of the Air Force as a whole.
