         After being a part of the Watergate at Landmark staff for 3 years in
         the Environmental Services and Maintenance Departments, manage-
         ment  is  pleased  to  announce  that  Bryan  Fingers  is  our  newly  ap-
         pointed Shop Foreman as of January 2019.  This is the person who
         makes  sure  our  common  areas  maintain  that  resort-style  look  we
         have at WAL. Does he look familiar to you? It’s probably because
         he was the 2017 Employee of the Year at WAL.

         Prior to accepting this position, Bryan was a Building Engineer in
         our community. You may have seen him caring for our indoor pool
         plants. Although he graduated from North Carolina Agricultural and
         Technical State University in 2013, Bryan still seeks to become a
         better  professional  through  taking  continuing  education  courses
         through the National Association of Power Engineers (NAPE). He
         is  working  towards  becoming  a  certified  Electrician  through  the
         courses he takes via NAPE.

         When asked about how he feels regarding this new responsibility,
         Bryan said, “I’m excited about the opportunity and looking forward
         to the challenge.”

         Congratulations again to Bryan for accepting this responsibility.
                                                                          The Shop Foreman and his staff works hard to keep
