LOCAL MANAGER RECOGNIZED FOR EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE
Sheila Coode goes above and beyond to ensure the residents of the four apartment complexes she manages feel like members of her own family.

MOUNT JULIET, Tenn., Jul 13, 2012 -- Sheila Coode goes above and beyond to ensure the residents of the four apartment complexes she manages feel like members of her own family.

For the last 12 years Coode has simultaneously managed Beckwith, Drakewood, Moreland and Stoner Creek apartments and provided a friendly and safe place to live near family and other community resources.

USDA Rural Development (RD) Area Director Christopher Westbrook joined JCH Management Company’s Glynda Shamwell to present Coode with a Site Manager of the Year plaque for her commitment and work improving the quality of life for her tenants.

"A good manager guarantees the success of any apartment complex," said Westbrook. "Beyond managing day-to-day operations, the best managers, like Ms. Coode, devote a great deal of their own time to provide tenants with a safe, affordable place to live and help them become a part of the community."

Coode, though almost in a state of constant travel between the four sites, maintains a high standard of living for her tenants and ensures each of the complexes she manages are kept aesthetically pleasing and in top working order.

"Ms. Coode is an exemplary manager and an even more exemplary person," said Westbrook. "She continually goes above and beyond the call and puts the needs of her tenants and the apartment complexes above her own. We are so proud of Sheila and all her accomplishments."

Others participating in the event included JCH Property Management staff members Stacie Stuck, Patricia Lehmann and Tiffany Head, Maintenance Personnel member Steve Cox and RD staff Kathy Connelly, Abby Boggs, Fallan Faulkner, Beverly A. McCadden and Regina Garth.

In partnership with private lenders and borrowers Rural Development provides financing for the purchase of, and improvements to affordable apartment complexes in rural areas of Tennessee. These developments meet the housing needs of families, senior citizens and the disabled. Rural Development’s rural rental housing program provides financing with interest rates as low as one-percent to developers who build or repair affordable multi-family rental housing to meet the demand for housing in rural communities.

For information about any of the four apartment complexes, call 615-661-5988.

USDA Rural Development invests in jobs, infrastructure, community development, homeownership and affordable rental housing to improve the economic health of rural communities. During the last three years the agency has assisted at least 1.5 million Tennessee families and businesses in 158 communities, investing more than $2.5 Billion through affordable loans, loan guarantees and grants.
