VeRiiTaS is one of the Senior Leadership in KSI who has gone above and beyond. He treats everyone equally and was there personally and professionally during a hard time for me, that also led to me having to step down ultimately a second time, when I was on the DM 7 staff. I have personally witnessed him helping members during bad times, like with helping keeping them safe from attacks from blacklisted Gaming Communities, to helping them out with dire, life situations. VeRiiTa's advice and just him chilling, is always helpful to me and others. Its easy to take notice of that. Rita cares about KSI through and through, and I truly believe he deserves this award for his dedication and hard work that he puts into all of KSI.

Eli, aka, Gruntier, has been a stellar person, ever since I met him, back when he first joined KSI. He always knows how to show people the fun, especially with his one liners. I had the pleasure of working with Eli this past year once again, and even more so the pleasure of seeing him come into his own as an amazing Division Leader. He is quiet and humble, but will get right to business, making tough decisions, when he has to. He cares a ton for DM, as well as all of KSI. He shows all the members the fun, no matter what. Eli never complains, and even if something is going on in his personal life, he'll put that aside for any fellow KSI member, regardless of rank. We've seen the ups and downs of things together. Somehow, Eli always knows how to take a positive and turn it into a negative. He has made DM into a family oriented Division that people feel is a safe haven, like their home. Myself, and many others, are very Thankful for that.

Dragons is very well respected and has done a lot for DM this past year. I remember his furst run as a Co-Founder. He hasn't changed since, which is a great thing. He is very Professional. Always making sure to punish in private, and promote in public. Witnessed him doing both, and he does it with such Professionalism and charisma. He took on the cap of web ops over this past year, among taking on a lot with clan ops. He helped fix up an entire squad when he transferred. Thanks to him, it's still alive and flourishing under his leadership. Dragons is a fountain of knowledge, always willing to pass it down to others. He is passionate and dedicated to KSI, through and through. He'll play anything to please the members and branches out to all of the squads in DM, not just the one's that he's over.

This category is hard to choose, for me especially, as some know how highly I feel the General rank is held. Not this time. ROMEO is one of the best Generals I have seen in my 6+ years here in KSI. His skills are a force to be reckoned with. ROMEO practically ran his squad solo at one point in time. He slowly built it up to be one of the best squads I've ever seen in DM. When I stepped down, the second time from the DM 7 staff, I surprisingly chose to go to Venom, because of how ROMEO built this squad up, after he made it from a squad split. He recruited, trained, promoted people and growth in his squad, while successfully having amazing member retention. Everyone is always hanging around Venom, as it's infectious, and he turned it into a primarily Destiny 2 squad that every Destiny player wants to be a part of. He makes everyone in his squad feel important. He leads by example. He is a man of utmost respect that not only helps his members out with anything and everything KSI related, but also anything non KSI related. Everyone feels comfortable going to him, as he's non judgmental towards anything, and will even pull an all nighter to help anyone out. He has branched out to do this with all the members in DM now, but trained up some amazing officers and taught his entire squad how to respect one another. A very rare trait to see. Even at work, he'll jump on the Xbox app to check on how things are going. Not to mention, he's been acting Gen twice over his squad now, and once over another squad in DM, always happy to be there to help. ROMEO deserves this award and has all the aspects every General in all of KSI should be.

First off, I must say I never met such an amazing, warm hearted soul such as Pam, aka, DntAsk. She is an amazing and aspiring person. She does it all. People from the Board of Directors have taken notice of her, with good reason. They see the kindness and genuineness that this woman upholds. She is nice to everyone, no matter what. I've never seen someone go out if their way like her, as she jumps on to see if game nights are running smoothly, jumps on when it's inopportune for her, if she sees someone needs a Promotion, putting her own self aside. She hosts weekly open game nights, to ensure everyone in her squad is having fun. She gets to know every member, and spends time with some struggling, whether it be KSI related or in real life, truly offering and trying her best to help them, any way she can. Pam is so respected in her perspective squad and all of DM. She helped me once, and had me tearing up, all in a good way, during some really hard times. This woman exceeds officer expectations. She mentors others to be the best they can, especially when they first take on rank/responsibility. People respect her to an outstanding extent, with good reason. She even buys games she wouldn't normally play, just to play and get to know members in the squad. She even does her own "Member of the Week Spotlight", where she asks a member every week a series of questions about themselves, so they could be known throughout the squad, posting it in the squad chat server. She makes people feel special when promoting them to PVT, CPL, and SGT. She is a true gem that DM is lucky to have. On top of that, she is super active on the forums, always posting encouraging things and participating in stuff. She thrives to learn more and more. I can't wait to see what the future holds for her here in KSI, as it will for sure be a bright one.

This guy is a role model SGT and SSGT as well, making him the perfect candidate. He came into KSI trying to put up a tough shell. Didn't take long too see through his "tough" exterior. He is an upstanding guy, always jumping into any party, showing the members of DM what having fun and gaming is all about. He helps people in games, and even by listening and offering advice in real life situations. MetalPlains is always inviting others to parties too, making them feel Welcome. He attends many game nights, even if he doesn't have the game. Recently, he's been trying his best to learn what it takes to be a great officer, no matter what. He listens to constructive criticism, and tries to better himself from it. He truly cares about KSI and bonds with people to just be their friend and be there for them. We are all thankful to him, for that and much more.

Michelle, known to some better as MeShell, is such an asset to all of DM. She is super sweet nice, and infectious, especially her personality. People love being around her, understandably so. She even infected DM with a love for ROBLOX, myself included, as she knows how to get a party of people playing and having fun like no other. Michelle stuck it out as long as she could in her old Division. She came in and bought all she learned and experience to a great squad that many in DM call home, as it's basically like the flagship squad. She rose up to General again, very deserving of it. She compromises everything any member in KSI should be, and more. She spreads all her fun and awesomeness around the DM Discord server and the squad she is currently over. We are all happy and lucky to have her here. She has gained so much respect here, very quickly at that too.
