Pikes Peak Chapter Member Selected to Lead Air Force Public Affairs
A member of PRSA’s Pikes Peak Chapter has been selected to lead the Air Force worldwide public affairs program. Colonel Kathleen Cook, currently director of public affairs for Air Force Space Command at Peterson AFB, will replace Brig. Gen. Les Kodlick as Air Force director of public affairs following Kodlick’s retirement on Feb. 28.
In announcing the move to the Air Force public affairs community, General Kodlick said, “Colonel Cook is a superlative PA who is well respected around the Air Force and across the career field; her leadership and command experience are downright impressive. She has led at the joint, major air command and wing levels, and commanded at the group and squadron level. Many of you will be interested to know that she started her career as an enlisted airman musician trumpet player. How cool is that?”
General Kodlick served as Air Force Space Command director of public affairs here from July 2006 to December 2007. He also served as chief of public affairs for the 21st Space Wing at Peterson from 1991 to 1994
