Quincy Harper Sr. 
We learned late last week that our Community Manager, Quincy Harper was leaving us to pursue other endeavors. His last day of employment with Spectrum was Friday, September 9th.

The Board of Directors, Staff, Volunteers and Community Members wish to express our deepest appreciation for all of the hard work, long hours and late nights he put in to making the first phase of the transition a success.  We are grateful for his kindness, loyalty, wisdom and commitment to all of us.

We look forward to working with Mike Hunsucker, who will be serving as the new Community Manager, starting Monday, September 12th.

TaMarsh Thompson
The national nonprofit organization, Homes for Our Troops (HFOT), will award a home to Chief Warrant Officer (CW4) TaMarsh Thompson on Saturday, September 17, 2016. CW4 Thompson was severely injured while serving in Afghanistan. The event will be held at 2115 Sage Run at 10 A.M. The public is welcome to attend and tour the home after the ceremony.
 
On March 22, 2012, CW4 Thompson was returning from a combat mission when the Apache Helicopter he was piloting crashed. CW4 Thompson sustained a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other injuries in the crash.
 
CW4 Thompson's new home features more than 40 major special adaptations such as widened doorways for wheelchair access, a roll-in shower, and kitchen amenities that include pull-down shelving and lowered countertops. The home will also alleviate the mobility and safety issues associated with a traditional home, including navigating a wheelchair through narrow hallways or over thresholds, riding on carpets, or reaching for cabinets that are too high. All costs for the home will be covered by Homes for Our Troops and its network of donors, supporters and corporate partners.
 
HFOT will present the home to CW4 Thompson mortgage-free, thanks to contributions from donors, supporters, and corporate partners. Currently, there are over 76 active projects in need of funding to complete. To find out more on how to get involved or make a donation visit www.hfotusa.org
 
For five consecutive years, HFOT has received a 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency by Charity Navigator, America's premier charity evaluator. The 4-star rating represents the highest one achievable by nonprofits.

Other variations of 'earth tone' colors may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
