Massey Services was recently recognized as a Champion for Children by Killarney Elementary School in appreciation of our Team Members’ dedication to Killarney students during the 2015-2016 school year.
“Massey has been an amazing partner,” Additions/P.I.E. Coordinator Jennifer Earnest said. “We look forward to working with you this upcoming school year.”
Massey has been working with the students at Killarney for many years through the Central Florida Hotel & Lodging Association’s (CFHLA) Adopt-a-School program. Through this program, team members volunteer their time to mentor students and help them with their reading. In addition, Massey sponsors reading and math contests for third, fourth and fifth grade students and partners with Dollar Tree to collect personal hygiene items that are donated to disadvantaged students. Massey also sponsors a Teacher of the Month recognition program at Killarney through a partnership with the Talk of the Town Restaurants. During the past year, Massey sponsored Killarney’s participation in the Annual Winter Park “Ye Olde Hometown” Christmas Parade.
Senior Account Manager Jay Hunt has been a major force in Massey’s involvement with this initiative and was recognized for his work on behalf of Killarney when he was named “Allied Member of the Year” by the Central Florida Hospitality and Lodging Association (CFHLA) in 2014.
Thank you to Jay and to all our Team Members who support this worthwhile endeavor.
At Massey, our people make the difference.
Harvey L. Massey, Chairman and CEO of Massey Services, is pleased to announce that Jay Hunt, Commercial Account Manager, was named 2014 “Allied Member of the Year” by the Central Florida Hospitality and Lodging Association (CFHLA). This award is presented to an individual who has a strong commitment to the organization and community.
Hunt demonstrates his dedication to the community through CFHLA’s Adopt-a-School program, working with Killarney Elementary. Through this program Hunt and other Massey Services team members encourage students to improve their math grades by participating in the Massey Math Miles contest. Hunt also takes part in the school’s initiative to make better readers. In addition to his work at Killarney, Hunt also partners with Dollar Tree to collect personal hygiene items that are donated to homeless students in Orange and Osceola counties.
“In the years Jay has been with the Massey organization, he has exhibited an incredible drive to support others who are less fortunate,” said Harvey L. Massey. “His willingness to lend a helping hand and assist others exemplifies one of the key tenets of our company’s Guiding Philosophy, volunteerism. We are extremely proud that Jay is a part of our team.”
A year of giving back is ending and Massey Services, the nation’s fifth largest pest prevention company continues its philanthropic activities, as it has done throughout 2013. Keeping with the holiday spirit, Massey Services PrevenTech Commercial Services division, under the leadership of Vice President of Commercial Services Paul Giordano, sponsored Orange County Public School’s Killarney Elementary School in the 61st annual Winter Park “Ye Olde Hometown” Christmas Parade. The division donated the school’s entrance fee and also supplied holiday decorations for the students marching in the parade.
Massey Services adopted Killarney Elementary School as part of the Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association (CFHLA) Adopt-A-School program.
“Massey Services has been a dedicated supporter of the Adopt-A-School program and Killarney Elementary for the past two years,” said Paul Giordano. “With our commitment to the school and the students, we hope to help them learn and expand their knowledge through our sponsored math contests as well as our “bug classes” which educate them on the many insects we encounter in the state of Florida. We are excited to see their enthusiasm as we join them outside the classroom to celebrate a holiday tradition in this traditional parade.”
This is the second year that Massey Services has sponsored Killarney Elementary in the parade. Since Massey Services adopted the school in 2012, it has provided rewards including Massey Services box seats to Orlando Magic basketball games for the top three students who improved their math skills each year as part of the Massey Math Miles contest. Massey Services Technical and Training Director Bob Belmont has also worked with the students on insect and pest education programs.
