The Facilities department selected Mr. Dwight Murray for May's Employee of the Month. Mr. Murray is a Maintenance Mechanic III who works at Scruggs Manor, which has 86 units. He is a mechanic of all trades. He works on HVAC units, sheetrock, doors, bathroom tiles and floors. There is nothing this man cannot do. Occasionally, when he is sent to other properties to fix AC units, he not only fixes the units, he helps teach the other mechanics. He teaches Maintenance Mechanic I and II's tricks of the trade and sometimes even teaches Maintenance Mechanic III's. Dwight is a pleasure to work with, he takes pride in his work, and his supervisor feels confident going on vacation and leaving him in charge.

Assisted Housing
The Assisted Housing department’s Evelyn Valentin was selected for May's Employee of the Month. Evelyn Valentin has been with the Tampa Housing Authority for over 11 years. Coming from the Pinellas Housing Authority, she started in December 2018 as a Housing Counselor for the Assisted Housing Department and later became one of our Quality Control Specialists. For close to 10 years, Evelyn and the Quality Control team would review a percentage of the housing specialist files to determine accuracy and to ensure they meet HUD’s guidelines. This has allowed the agency to remain high performers for the last 12 years. In November of 2019 this changed as Evelyn stepped out of her comfort zone and took over a recently vacated caseload. During this time, she had to relearn File Vision and Yardi from a housing specialist's point of view. She also had to once again learn how to work closely with our clients and landlords. Although Evelyn was nervous at first, she has been able to transition well to her new but temporary position. Evelyn has taken on the challenge with the goal of not only assisting our department with a need but with also determining how she can use these new skills and tasks in her current position with the Quality Control team. We appreciate her dedication to serve as well as her determination in learning and applying new skills.
