2012 brings a new program to MC – The MC HERO AWARDS…
Here are a few snippets of what people had to say about our first HERO RECIPIENTS:
Sandy Rocka- Property Manager, The Place at Harvestree Plano, TX
Sandy is an amazing manager that is highly respected amongst her peers… It’s also not unusual for her to open her home to displaced residents or MC employees that need a place to stay. I adore this lady and respect her immensely.
Jen Humphrey, nominator
Sandy is a team player. Not only on a property level but on a MC level. She is always ready to assist anyone with questions they may have and she demonstrates great knowledge of the MC way!.. Sandy is a very respected manager in Texas and her property continues to be in the top ratings in just about any category. Not only is she a strong manager but she is also a very caring and honest person…
Tammy Martinez, nominator
What a way to kick off the MC HERO by recognizing Sandy. Sandy is one of our most experienced and successful associates. Her asset runs very smoothly which is a reflection of her and her teams personality. Sandy is a natural leader. Her team as well as her peers turn to Sandy when any insight is needed. Sandy is also very giving to her team , her peers, her customers and her community. Sandy inspires us all to be an MC HERO.

Edelmira “Mira” Enciso – Housekeeper, The Place at Edgewood Tucson, AZ
Mira goes out of her way to help when we need it… when we’re short staffed in the maintenance department…
Reynaldo Rodriquez, nominator
Mira is our housekeeper extraordinaire! On Saturday, January 21st, Mira celebrated her 8th year anniversary with MC… She is meticulous and fast and it is because of her that turns are completed in a much more timely matter… Not only does she pitch in to help ANYONE with ANYTHING but she also unselfishly participates in any charitable events that the Edgewood Team and MC is involved in, such as Cystic Fibrosis walks and huge yard sale, Salvation Army Adopt-A-Family. Mira also participates in any AMA event that she is invited to – to include Maintenance Mania where she won “Most Creative” race car! Mira comes to work every day with a positive attitude and is such a hard worker that she inpires all of us to do and be the best that we can every day! We love our Mira!
Maria King, nominator
…she has been with us a long time, is very active in community activities, and is an exceptional employee.

HERO Honorable Mention: Saddle Creek Maintenance Team of Rene Lozano, Jorge Lopez, Jesse Rede
Back in July when I first arrived at Saddle Creek, Jorge came into the office looking for one of our umbrellas. I kinda snickered and asked why he needed an umbrella, we were in a severe drought. He said that Ms. Coleman at apt 1309 had fallen and they wanted to give her shade. I jetted up and grabbed the umbrella and headed to where she was at. There was Rene and Jesse keeping her company while they waited for the paramedic’s to arrive. Ms. Coleman is slowly losing her mobility and she fell on the sidewalk. It was so hot…so the guys went and got her pillow, the umbrella called 911 and waited calmly at her side. I have been blessed to have GREAT maintenance teams my entire career…but I just thought this was outstanding. They just handled it. Granted, they should have let me know, but they were just prioritizing the events… This act of kindness really meant so much to this resident. Word of this deed does get around and then the community knows they can count on the team to take the extra steps to take care of them…
