CCH Security Officer William Nokes Finds Purpose with the United States Air Force

GILLETTE, Wyo. - Jan. 31. 2024 -  Campbell County Health (CCH) bids farewell to one of its most dedicated employees, William Nokes, who served as a Security Officer for nearly five years. William's last day with the organization was January 29, 2024, as he prepares for a new chapter of his life by enlisting in the United States Air Force.

A Gillette, Wyoming native, Will was a familiar face at CCH, where he humbly but profoundly contributed to the organization's mission, values, and safety. On the morning of his departure, friends, family, and leaders from across CCH gathered in a small conference room to witness Will being sworn into the Air Force.

Will's aspiration lies in cyber intelligence and he is excited to see what path he will take in the Air Force. Currently eyeing March for his departure to Lackland Air Force Base for basic training, Will reflects on his time at CCH with fond memories.

"When I think of CCH, I think of the camaraderie and teamwork. It's really just a good place to be. We're all family here," Will shared. He expressed gratitude for the experiences gained during his tenure, emphasizing the passion and dedication of CCH employees.

Having sat with individuals on their worst days, Will notes, "You can give them a perspective or a smile they otherwise wouldn't have had. And you just can't get any better or more wholesome than that."

CCH Security Manager and Navy Veteran Adam Boothe highlighted Will’s impact on the organization. "He's humble and underplays the impact he's had on our organization. There were nurses crying knowing that he was leaving."

Boothe shared an instance where Will organized a birthday party for a patient, demonstrating Will's empathy and commitment to brightening people's lives. "He cares, and he's humble, despite the job being hard at times. He believes in CCH's mission, and this is his family here."

Reflecting on Will's future, Boothe stated, "I know that he is going to be successful, and I really hope he pushes himself and continues to grow into a leader."

Campbell County Health expresses gratitude for William Nokes's dedicated service and wishes him the best in his new endeavors with the United States Air Force. As he takes this significant step, CCH is proud of Will’s commitment to our community and to our nation.
