Two decades of service

Key West Housing Authority Commissioners recognized and congratulated Chandra Tynes for 20 years of service. She began her career in the resident trainee program, and has successfully progressed to the positions of property supervisor and public housing manager. In 2003, she was recognized by her peers as the Employee of the Year.

Also recognized for 20 years of loyal service is James Murphy, who began as a maintenance trainee, and now has served as a maintenance mechanic in various departments, in both Key West and Marathon.

Claudia Moreno was selected as the Employee of the Fourth Quarter. She began her career with the Housing Authority in 2007. She served as a housing manager until early 2014 when she became the county Section 8 representative. Her commitment and work ethic make her a valuable assist to the Housing Authority.

Employees givve helping hand

Keys Energy Services' (KEYS) employees recently spread holiday cheer to local needy children by donating more than $1,500 worth of gifts in advance of the holiday season.

The KEYS Employee Activities Committee recently collected monetary donations from employees to go toward the purchase of gifts for needy children who would not otherwise receive such gifts during the holiday season. The committee partnered with Poinciana Elementary school to identify needy children to benefit from the gift drive.

"At a time when many families are struggling, I am extremely appreciative our employees were able to help brighten the holidays for some of the young members of our community most in need," said Lynne Tejeda, KEYS' general manager and CEO.

The Employee Activities Committee is a volunteer, self-funded group of employees that help to organize employee morale boosting activities throughout the year at no cost to KEYS or its customers.
