Housing Employee Honored at August 2019 Employee Recognition Event

Posted on September 30, 2019 at 12:54 pm by Dawn Corrigan

On August 30, 2019, Pensacola Housing employee LaToria English was named the City’s August Employee of the Month.

Ms. English was nominated after an incident in July. Over the weekend of July 27, she was driving on Cervantes Street when she saw one of her clients in the middle of the road, in traffic, in apparent distress. She immediately pulled over and parked safely, then went to assist the client. Ms. English was able to persuade the client to return safely to the sidewalk, purchased a meal for her, and spoke to PPD on her behalf.

Such quick-acting, caring behavior is typical of Ms. English’s work at the Housing Division. She is always looking out for the best interests of her clients, while also ensuring that program standards are upheld.

Ms. English joined the Housing Division as a Housing Placement Specialist in March 2017. Before that, she spent several years with the Parks and Recreation Department. She’s a great example of the hard work and dedication of our City staff.

Congratulations, LaToria!
