Congratulations to Lissette Mathus with Dave and Busters who received the Shining Star Award in January. Like many members, she has a busy schedule, yet is always there to help coordinate logistics with the team and to execute fabulous education programs.
Here are some interesting tidbits about Lissette:
If you had to pick another profession, it would be what?
Depends on location. A Mai Tai at the beach and a glass of red wine at home
How would your colleagues describe you?
Dependable, friendly, and a “go to” person
Congratulations to Tierra Copeland of Building Owners & Managers Association of Georgia! She was chosen as the Shining Star for October 2016. Tierra served as Program Manager for July which is always a tough program to coordinate. She did a wonderful job, was enthusiastic and has offered to volunteer again.
Talk about the personal touch: Tierra was unable to attend the luncheon, and our chairperson, Carol, went to her office and personally presented the award to her in front of her bosses.
Here are some interesting tidbits about Tierra:
- Weirdest type of food she has eaten – Alligator Meat
- Her least favorite food and why – Olives because of their taste and how they smell
- One of her favorite Atlanta restaurants – Taco Mac
- If she could be any celebrity, which one would you choose and why- Oprah Winfrey because she sticks up for what is right and believes you can do anything if you put your mind to it!
Thank you to our
